I agree. Le Carré tends to use things like housing developments. Perfect Spy has "Wentworth" as a big-deal code name -- "Are you Wentworth cleared?"

I remember the tale of the kid who stashed all the stuff he wanted to hide from his parents in a folder labelled "algebra" on the family computer -- because they'd never look there. Most code names should be the same way. Utterly pedestrian.
