comment Most Appropriate log-structured file system to use with Linux / SSD?
Yes, modern SSDs targeted for server/desktop use spread writes quite fine. Just make sure that you reduce the amount of "unncessary" writes, if you're concerned about device wear. Disabling atime updates, as suggested above, is a good first start if you don't run applications which depend on it's presence.

comment Naming Conventions
Since we used either OpenVZ or VMware ESX on all of our physical servers, those had according names. The few machines without hypervisor we had, had very specific hardware catered for a single task. E.g. the backup machine had room for 16 3.5" disks and would be reinstalled if it were to be repurposed, and this would've included assigning a new hostname. And the virtual servers all had very specific hostnames and often served only a single service/task (which was reflected by the hostname).
