Ty-pho-n or Za-pho-d Beeblebrox. Zaphod's starship "Heart of Gold" in the
Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy has a ship's computer called Eddy.

Of course, Typhon didn't start out in a starship in tBotNS, and I don't
know whether tBotNS or HHGG was published first. The _Whorl_ is long
after Eddy the computer, of course.
