In addition to the obvious cryptography naming convention, I thought there was a reference to the 1969 movie classic Bob&Carol&Ted&Alice about infidelity and partners swapping. The climax scene has all 4 climb to bed together with Bob and Alice (married, but not to each other) kissing passionately.  The movie inspired a genre of sexual comedies, and to this day, calling out a few of the names with a "&" between is used as a euphemism for "too sexually liberal for their own good."

She looks very similar to the character called [[Danish]] after an enigmatic remark in [[515]]. But here she is called Eve. Shouldn't we rename the character everywhere? [[Special:Contributions/162.158.102.137|162.158.102.137]] 13:39, 12 March 2016 (UTC)

Hmm... the existance of http://aram.xkcd.com/ suggests that Black Hat Guy has the same name as his acknowleged inspiration, so does that make them Aram and Eve ;) ? -- [[Special:Contributions/141.101.98.142|141.101.98.142]] 10:07, 8 January 2017 (UTC)
