Sandhip, Poornima: Good guesses (and things I never knew!), but I was looking for something  more specific.

Answer:

SUN microsystems had a combined ethernet/SCSI controller that was unofficially codenamed Happy Meal. http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Happy_Meal&oldid=196021468  FTW.

    The Ethernet & SCSI interface on the workstations at Sun are named hme0 standing for ‘Happy Meal’, as a logical successor to the previous ‘Big Mac’ interface (bm0).

    Mitesh Agarwal will be proud of you for asking this question.
