Strange patrol names

I am curious as to what sort of patrol names your Scouts choose. T401 here
at the American School in London has just had a group of Webelos Scouts
bridge, and they will be the "Alpha Apes " patrol. They will join others
including " Ace of Spades ", " Mad Cows" and " Nufan ". ( Nufan stands
for " no use for a name " ) I suppose that to be politically correct they
ought to have insisted on the Mad Cows being renamed as the " Cattle
neurologically challenged as a result of suspected bovine spongiform
enephalopathy " patrol ?
When I was a Scout it was just boring old Kestrels, Panthers and Wolves ...
