Personally, I am opposed to any form of strangeness on the Internet that makes it a less hospitable and self-idiomatic place. But as a lark, and because this was rolling around in my brain what would be some good "other names" that we could use to identify certain saints, theologians, poets and goodly housewives?

Please CW your answers and do one per faith tradition (i.e. Orthodox, Catholic, Reformed etc...) unless your Church objects to pseudonyms, then please ignore this post with my humblest apologies.
