I've adopted Discworld cities as a naming convention for my boxen.
Hence Sto Kerrig, which is the name of my home box and my domain. I
used Ankh-Morpork for a while in 97, but rejected it as too obvious.
I ran through all the cities of the Sto Plains (Sto Kerrig, Sto Lat
and Sto Helit) and the box on my desk at work is called Pseudopolis
(my favoured spelling).

Twoflower is a character who features in a couple of Discworld books:
The Colour Of Magic, and Interesting Times.
