Apparently nothing good happens when I watch open class finals and visit DCXMuseum... 

I found what might be my favorite corps name: Flying Dutchmen. (and according to DCX, they didn't play Wagner!)

Flying Dutchmen
Audubon Bon Bons
Chessmen
Annunciators
Jay Jays
Cadets of Greece 
Earls of Buck

These are incredible. Others?

Certain members, including Jim Wren, did not like that name. They had listened to a recording of the Syracuse Brigadiers playing a Leroy Anderson song "The Phantom Regiment" and convinced our corps director, Mr. Alex Haddad, to consider it as their corps name; he did and the Phantom Regiment and the Phantomettes were so christened.

I agree, Phantom Regiment is the overall winner. I have always loved the alliterative poetry of the Santa Clara Vanguard. And I have a soft spot for the Seneca Optimists in their sunshine-yellow uniforms.

My all-time favorite is The Muchachos. To my early adolescent self, the name (and their 1974 show) sounded indescribably cool. But my wife, a native Spanish-speaker, always laughs when she hears this, as to her ears, it just sounds like "the guys."
