Thank god young people can't spell - and someone should tell him he needs to go see a doctor about that if he wasn't actually talking about peanu(t)s... :mad:

If you want to get serious about it, follow the 3 (or 4) rules to code-names...

1) positive adjective/descriptor, that shows some moxy while not being too egotistical (gutsy, feisty, dapper...)

2) animal noun/name, usually something off the beaten path (warthog, gibbon, drake, fawn..)

3) must use alliteration (both words start with same letter)

4) (not sure how strict this is, but) words can be 2 syllables max each

So nothing too funky, like "supercalafragiliciousexpialidocious salmon"
Or non-animal, like "succulent sandwich"
Or negative/derogatory, like "salacious salmon"

But, things like...

"poised peacock"
"saucy salmon"

...there you go.

Of course, it's not as humourous if you follow rules. I kinda like the idea of a "Horny Housewife" version.

Aren't the names supposed to have the first word and the second word start with the same letter?

It's always "Adjective Animal" and the same starting letter for both.

Jolly Jay/Jerboa/Joey.

That would work, since a jay is a small twittering bird, a jerboa is a jumping rodent and a joey is a baby kangaroo--they all move around all the time, which could symbolize exploration of new places and possession of happy natures.
