Code Name "Spike"


Once we saw El Dos on the screen, we decided that he wasn't just a number anymore, he needed something more... he became Spike (thanks, Dad).

We know, of course, that once he exits the womb, he can't remain "Spike."  And, naturally, we have found scads of awful names.

On the top of our hate list are Whiskey Names.  
Jack Daniel (or any variation of John/Jack/Jax/Jon/Jaxson/Jackson/Jacques)
Jameson
