  • Need colorful names...literally!

    For a game that may or may not come to fruition, and inspired by the recent James Bond movie news, I'm working on a villainous spy organization. Given that the recent Bond films have all had at least one bad guy with a color for a last name (Mr. White, Dominic Greene, and Raoul Silva) I thought I'd smash together the two villainous organizations, SPECTRE and Quantum, to create SPECTRUM, and I need names for its members. The figures are less costumed villains, more superspy villains. I'm also going to assume that these names could be codenames or real names.

    So far I have:

    Sterling Silvertongue: Name inspired by Auric Goldfinger, so probably the character is inspired by him as well, but I might also combine him with Blofeld/Number 1 and make him the leader of SPECTRUM, consolidating the master villain archetype.

    Skye Blue: I'm thinking this is Silvertongue's pilot and henchwoman, ala Pussy Galore.

    Blackhat: I'm torn, since he could be like Oddjob, or it could be the organization's chief hacker.

    While these first three map onto Bond characters, that's not my intention for all of them, I just saw connections. I also have-

    Agent Orange: I know there's a WildStorm villain with this name, but I'm using it because it sounds perfect for the sinister hitman and chief enforcer.

    Lily White: A villainous Bond Girl-type, maybe?

    Redd Flag: A more brutish henchman than Agent Orange, probably.

    I'm looking for more names like those, whether for colors I haven't used yet or for ones I already have. I don't think SPECTRUM would limit themselves to just one agent per color.

    Indigo Chylde - Perhaps badass villainess like the Baroness?

    Forrest Green - Charming rogue and double agent?

      Blackman: white guy oblivious to why that name could be construed as racist, who shoots our a black ink from his fingers.

        Saphfire - Blue flame controlling henchman.

        Gold - Higher level villain. Sows chaos through taking advantage of mankind's greed. Builds up and/or crashes economies, tempts politicians with money, and generally showcases the depths to which humanity is willing to sink for a buck. Probably has a Transform-based power.

        Green Ronin - Enforcer. Lower level plant control with a focus on crowd control, and possibly an alternate wooden form.

        Sasha Grey - Seductress.

              I don't know who did it first, but DC also went with this idea

                Be careful with that one, Sasha Grey is the stage name of a very famous pornographic star. Ms. Grey has largely retired from adult entertainment to focus on mainstream films and a career of BDSM-themed romance novels*.

                Given the um... NSFW content that an innocent google search of that name would generate, I'd caution against using it.
