But it could bring bad glory because command and control is a common name for
servers of botnets ( ).

I think 'the mom' is a nice suffix for the name.

Trying to google different female names similar to John I got back to Joan.

Joan the Mom
Joan the MOM for John the Ripper
where MOM could be read as mathematically optimal manipulator or manual
organized manipulator. Also MOM interferes with Message Oriented Middleware
that is close to project's subject.
