Secret Service code names

| No Comments

TIME magazine provides a list of 11 Great Secret Service Code Names. I don't love their discussions and presentation of the names, but I like the names themselves, from Paul Ryan's “Bowhunter” to Barack Obama's “Renegade” to Cindy McCain's “Parasol.” And yes, the gender differences are especially interesting. has a better and longer list without the annoying annotations, though also presumably without the fact-checking. That list has a fair bit of overlap with a list from the NNDB, though I don't know whether either of those two lists used the other as a source. Some of the ones I like from those lists:

Todd Palin
Amy Carter
Hillary Rodham Clinton
Queen Elizabeth II
Frank Sinatra
Maureen Reagan
Dan Quayle
George H. W. Bush
John Anderson
Laura Bush
Prince Charles
