New pseudonyms

So I had a few complaints about naming the baby "Z." Trouble is, we've got two people in our family whose names begin with J, and two whose names begin with M (including the baby). So, after great deliberation, I've come up with a new set of pseudonyms:

B (our oldest boy) = Bean
M (our oldest girl) = Meadow
J (our youngest girl) = Jujube
M (our youngest boy) = Moon

S = Sunflower
J = Jupiter

Yes, it DOES make us sound like a hippie commune, but it's the best I can do under the circumstances. I looked at lists of minerals, flowers, spices, birds, planets, planetary moons, etc., etc., to try keeping these names part of some set, but it just didn't work. So if you have a better suggestion, let me know in the comments box.
