Hey, has anyone had interesting project code-names that you'd like to share?

I'll kick it off with a few:

    Balvanie, Cardhu, Talisker, Glenfarclas, Bowmore (a product family - launches were fun!)

    Luxor, Destiny (flagships)

    Sonoma, Napa, Nagano

    Xena, iCruiser, Whistle, Carlsburg,

    the Visor, the Cylon (descriptive, because or the product look)

    Matador (my favorite - from local bristol meatpie the client liked)

Is HardCandy a reference to the movie? If so, I'm curious who the target market was/is. Haha

Just thinking about the movie makes me wince a little bit.

Petricore is interesting... is there a meaning you can share?

Kenny - awesome!

Petrichor is the smell from hot asphalt after it rains.
'Kenny' literally looked like Kenny, with the hood.

that reminds me of another project code name too, for an actual desktop pc in 90s... "Blackhawk"
one more: "Monkey"
