That's an awesome idea.

I'm dating a girl called Alison, I'm sure she'll be impressed if I named a kernel after her.

I just need to explain what a kernel is first....and operating system too. But once I've given her a brief course in computing, I'm sure I'll get laid ;)

Debian was named partly like that, apparently also after Debra Lynn ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ian_Murdock ); in this case, it clearly worked in regards to slight "immortalizing" and such (I'm mentioning her after all)

Didn't seem work very well when it comes to long term relationship, but if you're after getting laid... ;) ;)

And damn, with my local world for "kernel" it could be ...awkward. It is essentially the same word as the one used for "testicle" (also other meanings, "nucleus" or "core" for example, but still)
