Sherlock was chosen because of the name's connection with finding things. Some of these other mystery names are more related to murder; not exactly what is wanted here. I'd go more with something related to the actual function rather than something related to Sherlock Holmes.

If you want to keep the mystery relationship though, how about BLOODHOUND ? Or just "HOUND DOG" ? Or "ROVER" ?
