Hopkins Code Names

Published: July 24, 2019

Spy training

Spanish learners in Hopkins selected code names for themselves as they jumped into spy training this week, with some interesting results! Somewhere in Costa Rica, there may be agents using aliases like Elefante Picante, Tiburón X, or  Cocodrilo Oscuro - identities designed to conceal and protect while agents complete their top secret missions. 

Want a code name of your own? Simply match up the first letter of your first name with a nombre in the left column. That will be your first name. Then match the first letter of your last name with a word in the apellido column. This is your last name.  Now put them together and get used to responding when your special name is invoked!
