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.

Kenny - awesome!

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