Here's a contest for fans of the NBC show Surface. Come up with a nickname for Miles (the kid who's raising the infant sea monster). Laura the oceanographer is Girl Genius. Her obsessive/compulsive science geek attitude just reminds me of Agatha Clay. Rich the insurance salesman whose brother was killed by one of the new sea creatures is obviously Jethro Bodine.

This leaves Miles. The character is so Pathetically bland that nothing jumps out as a good nickname. I suppose that I could go with nerd boy, but that is what Bun Bun calls Torg and Torg has too much personality to be linked to Miles.

So help me out. What do we call Miles?
