You can use whatever you like. I tend to be boring and use a combination of
names & numbers.
COMPANYS001, 002, 003 for servers
COMPANYW001, 002, 003 for workstations.
Some people prefer FLOWER, THUMPER, BAMBI.... KIRK, SPOCK, MCCOY ... but as
I said, I'm incredibly boring. Whatever you do, don't name workstations
after users. Users move, users quit, etc. You can always keep track of who
uses what in the description field in the AD computer object.
Don't use underscores or spaces...keep them simple, keep them short.
