What did you name your distro?

I was just wondering what names people have come up with for their LFS builds.

Mine was christened Thud-Linux as that's pretty much all it does so far. Mind you it's insanely secure!

The first one, on LFS version 3.0 I think: Plebian 1-A-6-* (Mr.Coffee)

Then the second one, on V. 3.1: Plebian 1-A-3-*** (Headcold)

The version numbers are of course based on the code I tap into the most putrid coffee machine on earth here in the basement at work.

Both run sshd and little else.
