    With all of these codenames, even going back to Javelin, Thunder and the like, I was just curious if there might be a theme or reason for each name? Specualtion begins... Now.

    Javelin- someone posted a lovely thread about relating the name Javelin to the devastating Missile. Great thought!

    Niagra- name of some of the, if not the, most powerful waterfalls in the world. Good name!

    Thunder- this was covered at length somewhere. Original codename, Storm, became so popular that they had to develop a cover codename.

    Driftwood- dunno

    Onyx- beautiful black stone. That's all I know.

    Gemini- it's kind of two devices. It's new but old at the same time

    Odin- Norse god. Dunno anything about him.

    Magnum- I once shot a .44 Mag. The kick was unfathomable. Power. Pure power.

    Pluto- Bringing a good reputation and redemption back to the name of the fallen planet.

    Atlas- a god-man strong enough to hold the earth.

    Jupiter- The largest planet in our solar system. The gravity on it is so powerful a human would be crushed to death just by being there. So I've heard.
    Any I missed?

    Pluto?

    ...the rock that got ****-slapped by no longer being considered a planet?

    Indeed. Bringing reputation back to the name by donning it on the best brand of SmartPhone around!

    I was just new to CB then and didn't pay attention. Don't know if the Bold and the Pearl and the Curve 83xx had codenames.

    I usually go off of numbers too! They're easier to remember!

    When I hear magnum I don't think about a gun. Seriously, I think about the condom.

    I'm with Amber, numbers are better.
