    Need a Fictional Name for fake credit card fins

    Working on rocket called the C.E.O. (Corporate Escape Option)
    Will have a body tube with a million dollar bill (facsimile) wrap, the (four) fins well be (facsimile) bank cards, Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover. Figured I'd put a fictional name on the credit cards. Any suggestions for the name?

    Oh yeah, the coup de grace of course is the parachute: Golden.

    THanks,

    Tom

    Keep em coming. With 4 fins, 2 sides each, I've got room for 8. If I may modify this suggestion, given the CEO Concept, I'm thinking "Buck Dodgers" might work really well!

    Well, I'm glad I'm not the only one that heard of this old radio show.

    Grew up an overseas military brat and listened to these programs on the Armed Forces Network (AFN) each night before I fell asleep.

    And yes, we moved a lot. I attended 21 different schools in the process of becoming educated.

    So BABAR, have you got a final list of the phony names? Inquiring minds want to know.

    Thanks for all the great suggestions!

    So far for card names I am thinking

    BlasterCard (might put Stines name on that one-- I liked that idea even if it doesn't quite fit the theme)

    Recover

    Andromedan Expense

    And either "VISTA" or "la VIVA loca"

    In addition to Stine I will also use Buck Dodgers. Otherwise I will have to pick 6 names from the above. Each card fin will have a different name on each side.
    There are a lot of good choices above.

    I want to put "To Big To Fail" on one side, and either CEO or Corporate Escape Option on the other side of the body wrap.

    Don't know about card names.

    For a rocket name, Government Bailout?

    4 of the Fins have designs. I may just use the same designs and change the names for the back sides. Also have the body wrap ready.
