Name That Villian Contest

Okay, enough with the maudlin introspection of yesterday.  I'm dusting of the NaNo project for partial display next month, and I realize that I have to name my villian.  The tentative name I have for him is so stupid that I can't even type it out loud. 

Here's the 411:  I have a bad guy who is masquerading as the best friend of the hero--the ultimate Freinemy--and the Cute Kid is the only one who knows he's really a bad guy.  The problem is, the Cute Kid spends alot of time in her own private Idaho, so when she tries to tell people about the villian, everyone just chuckles and pats her on the head.  Of course, she doesn't know the real name of the villian, because that would totally not work for this story.  She has her own name for the villian, but I can't decide what that should be. 

There are already so many great villian out there that it would be easy to steal someone else's name and bastardize it.  Heck, the Cute Kid is only 8, she doesn't have to be totally original.   I could spend the whole day Googling villians, but I don't have all day, because I'm not done with my Christmas shopping.  But here are a few of my favorites:
Okay, this last one isn't really a villian picture, although given Miley Cyrus and the Bong Incident, it might count.  I was actually looking for Gaston from Disney's Beauty and the Beast, and came upon this guy, who is/was Miley's beau.  He could tie me up and hold me hostage any time.  Ahem. 

ANYWAY.  I need help!  Should we have a contest?  What should I offer as a prize? Okay, here's the deal: you think of names for my villian, I'll go home and dig around in the basement for action figures. I'll  see what I have, and send the winning villian namer the action figure of their choice. 

Oh, and in case you didn't get my Private Idaho Reference:

  3. Well, thinking like an 8-yo, you could always go with something like Creepy Loser, Prince of Darkness, Captain Creepy, Jerk Face, Dr. Doom, etc.
