Code Name Help!
September 10, 2019 7:36 AM   Subscribe

For work, we are doing an event where I need a code name. This is fun and silly, but customer facing so PG is required. What should my code name be?

My code name needs to be work appropriate. I was thinking Bond Girl pun like Valley Daysun (validation) - but I work in software and don't love the connotations associated with being a Bond Girl.

Work references that I would love to incorporate as part of the name -

Part 11
Testing
Validation


Creative minds of Mefi - what are your thoughts?

Tess Ting is good, or Party Levin (part 11)?

This is a little random, but during my brief sojourn in QA, my boss emphasized how we should love to try to break things.

So! You could be Breaker Breaker, the levelheaded, tough, sassy voice on the rig radio who always gets you through! (Szzzzccccht! Come back? Copy that! Ten Four!)

FWIW I wouldn't associate a punny name with "Bond girl" unless it was a sexual pun, and I don't get that out of this. Although I might suggest "Val E. Dayshun" as a slight modification.

On the West Wing, C. J. Cregg's (Allison Janney) Secret Service code name was Flamingo, which I loved. I would choose a code name that gives you stature. Uno, Alpha, Pilot, Lumina, Skipper, Pacesetter, Pioneer, Edison, or America's Cup names: Enterprise, Ranger, Aurora. Greek and Roman goddesses re a rich vein, too.

Mine would be Poppins.

I was thinking "test pilot" association as a place to look for inspiration.
Spoilers for Captain Marvel:
Carol Danvers, who becomes Captain Marvel, is an Air Force test pilot with the call sign "Avenger" and her partner has the call sign "Photon."
