[i]The science team has started naming the rocks, drawing from fairy tales and folk legends. One Humpty-Dumpty-inspired rock was named "King's Men," and another "King's Horses." One otrough was named "Sleepy Hollow," so two nearby rocks are now "Ichabod" after Ichabod Crane, the main character of the story, and "Headless," the headless horseman who pursues Ichabod.
"This allows the team to have a little fun with the naming opportunities," Dr. Smith said, "because we're going to use as many as one or two hundred names throughout the mission, and it helps us remember what they are."[/i] — [URL=http://www.nytimes.com/2008/05/30/science/space/30mars.html?ref=science]New York Times[/URL]
