Golden rules to keep in mind when naming electronic devices

Since we were born, we were given a name to our parents, to distinguish them from other brothers in the house, and also to let others know who we are so that we can communicate and address them easier. The same goes for machines, electronics, or hardware components!

You do not need to care too much about the names of the devices you are using. However, an interesting and logical name can increase the efficiency of your work, increase the convenience during use, and it will bring a very interesting working inspiration for you.

Here are some important rules you should keep in mind

Do not use the device’s default name

The first important thing to remember is: Don’t use the device’s default name.

The default name is the name the manufacturer gave the device at the factory, if you only have 1 or 2 the same device then OK, no problem at all!

But if you have more than two devices, you’ll have a lot of trouble identifying the device to use, because their default names are often very generic, very complicated, and difficult to remember.

Name after the owner of the device

This is a traditional, simple but very easy to apply and effective way of naming.

This may seem a bit boring, but when you look at device names on the Internet, or connect to Bluetooth, share WiFi with friends, their device names are mostly in this form.

Using this naming pattern also makes it easy to distinguish your device from your colleagues ‘or family members’ devices (if they all own a device similar to yours, such as headsets, phones, laptops)

This situation often happens, not to say where far away is right in my family, and I have applied this way, quite effective here!

Do not use special characters, eMoji in the device name

Although naming the device is completely free, you can easily name it to your liking, and whether you name the device using special characters, or emoticons can make your device special, interesting and unmistakable.

But I also recommend that you should only use common characters, and are in the alphabet only because the above characters can cause very uncomfortable errors during later use.

Use short, simple names

There are times when you need to share, read the device name, or connect your device to another device. , what will they think of this nonsense name?

Similarly, you should not put a name that is too difficult to spell to make yourself special, troll others, and annoy people.

To tell the truth, looking at names like that, I’m not bothered to read or connect anymore. In general, the shorter and simpler the device name, the better it will be for yourself and everyone who comes into contact with your device.

Name the device according to its location

Just like naming the device after the owner, this works well when you own many similar devices such as TVs, Bluetooth speakers, … in many places in the house, such as the living room, the bedroom. , bathroom….

Use the template name available for your device

If you do not like to use very practical methods, close to life as the above methods, you can apply the following name samples available, of course, it is still effective and does not cause discomfort during use.
