In Robert A Heinlein's classic "The Moon is a Harsh Mistress", Mycroft (known as Mike) is the name of the computer that mysteriously becomes self-aware. Named for Holmes' brother. Can read thousands of books in a morning and is very good at analyzing and extracting information. Mycroft sounds appropriate to me.
If not Mycroft, perhaps Adam Selene... (you have to have read the book to get that though)
