I'm writing an article about naming genes. I'd like
to mention some interesting, clever, or just funny
examples. I'm not familiar with Arabidopsis, but
as far as I know it has some creative gene names,
as does Drosophila.

So, I'd like to ask you, what is your favourite
gene name? Please provide the explanation of the
name also.


PS. I already found one: Superman. Could you please
confirm if it is true that there is an allele of
it, which was originally thought to be another gene,
called Clark Kent?
