What if we name the spy Lancaster?

For those of you following along with the development of book 4 in the Portia Adams series, I think I’ve got a new tentative title: The Detective and the Spy.

It turns out the spy that Portia runs into in act 1 of the story, is becoming quite significant to the storyline. He started out as a Christopher, but in reading more about spies in the 1930s, I’m becoming enamoured of naming him after Ian Fleming, author of the James Bond series. Ian’s middle name is Lancaster, so here’s my question for all you fab fans out there, what do you prefer as a spy name?

  1. Writing as a former spy, I can tell you that all of my colleagues had very unremarkable names; in fact, if a candidate for the service had an unusual, eye-catching name, it probably would have disqualified that person from being recruited.
