28% and most of the ones I got right were sheer luck.

44%. A few I knew from picking up random X titles over the years but mostly guesses.

24%, all guess work, and no interest in any of them.

56%. But I only actually recognized a few of these and even still missed one of those.

36%, all guesses. I kept going for names that sounded much better than the ones the characters actually have. I was surprised at how many of these codenames sounded like rejected applicant jokes to the Legion, as if the idea is to create the dumbest name possible and work backwards from there, using scorn and mockery to create characters who are then presented to us straight-faced, challenging us to meet them with greater degrees of compassion and empathy than they were invented. "No, seriously! She's Shark Girl. She's suffered terribly! (sniggers) How dare you laugh at her?? Have you no shame?? (guffaws up sleeve)"

Also, Forget-Me-Not sounds very similar to a character from Alan Moore's "Ballad of Halo Jones."
