Naming convention for computers

It seems an important and difficult dilemma for me how to name network hosts (routers, servers (while a server can be a router and host diverse services at the same time), virtual machines (while they host important services and can migrate), workstations and notebooks (using pc-username is not the best idea as users may change), printers & MFUs, surveillance IP cameras, etc).

Are there known and accepted best practices for this task?

Excuse me if there already was a similar question here (I think it probably was), I haven't found it.

Only these as far as I know:

https://www.rfc-editor.org/rfc/rfc1123
https://www.rfc-editor.org/rfc/rfc273
https://www.rfc-editor.org/rfc/rfc236

Any other conventions are linked to particular limitations like for mainframes

There is no 'industry standard' (naming convention) when it comes to naming network hosts. There are plenty of ideas here:
