Here are some suggestions ff the top of my head. I think it would be cool to have a female name. (Aphrodite is a start, but...)

Agatha - Another name synonymous with mysteries/clues/searching

Dr. Watson - Sherlock's assistant/friend

Holmes - Sherlock's Last Name

Doyle - Author of Sherlock stories

Marple - Agatha Christy Detective

Jane - Miss Marple's first name

Poirot - Another AC character

Remington - Steele, an old fav

Holt - Laura, RS's partner

SamSpade - Bogart detective

Moriarty - Sherlock Holmes' nemesis

Maddie - Hayes (Cybill Sheppherd on Moonlighting)

Fenton - The Hardy Boys' dad

Nancy - Drew, redheaded sleuth

Sally - Encyclopedia Brown's friend
