in one BR campaign we encountered an awnsheigh that got on our
bad side, so the nicest thing we called her was The Bimbo. I don't think
we ever got a 'proper name' for her.

My wife and I name our ships and military units in the PBeM BR game we are
currently in. It adds some flavor and looks better in the rumors. My wife
is better at coming up with uniforms etc. I also like that she moves her
units around on a regular basis so that their 'training' is up to snuff.
That also makes espionage incorrect after a season or two.
