The Secret Service has long given codenames to the Presidents and their families. Ronald Reagan, for example, was known as Rawhide.

So at the Republican presidential debate Wednesday, moderator Jake Tapper asked the candidates what they would like for their name.

Here’s what they said:

Chris Christie: True Heart

John Kasich: Unit One, after his Ohio codename

Carly Fiorina: Secretariat, after the Triple Crown-winning horse

Scott Walker: Harley, for his love of motorcycles

Jeb Bush: Everready, a type of battery because it’s “high energy”

Donald Trump: Humble

Ben Carson: One Nation

Ted Cruz: Cohiba, a type of Cuban cigar

Marco Rubio: Gator, after the University of Florida sports team

Mike Huckabee: Duck Hunter

Rand Paul: Justice Never Sleeps
