Synnefo's ui provides a default name for a user's VM. The default name is being generated by prepending "My " and appeding " server" to the images name in the database. e.g. "My Debian Base server". The default appended part possibly signifies intended usage and could lead to assumptions about the service being provided by synnefo which may or may not be correct.

The patch below just changes the default " server" to something more generic aka " VM". However configurable values for both prepended and appended string might be desirable.

$("#machine_image-label")[0].textContent = imageName;
- $("input[type=text][name=machine_name]")[0].value = "My " + imageName + " server";
$("input[type=text][name=machine_name]")[0].value = "My " + imageName + " VM";
} else if (api.getIndex()==1) {
$("#machine_cpu-label")[0].textContent = $("#cpu-indicator")[0].value;
