This blog post is about some of the coolest spy code names that you will find anywhere. If you are a fan of James Bond movies, then you know that many spies in these films have cool code names like “Q” and “007.” These nicknames allow them to keep their true identity hidden from the people they are spying on. We thought it would be fun to share some of our favorite spy code names with all of our readers!
1) M – The most popular letter for a spy’s nickname is “M,” because it stands for “man.” This name has been used by many famous fictional spies such as Maxwell Smart (Agent 86), Napoleon Solo (The Man from U.N.C.L.E.), and Maxwell Smart’s boss, Chief.

For Agent 0011 in the French movie La Femme Nikita, there are two different meanings: M could stand for his first initial Maurice or Maxi. It may also represent that he was the eleventh agent to take over this code number since its invention after World War II; hence, 11=Mai son of April).
In the French movie, they say “Je time” more than anything.
This phrase is used more often in the movie than anything else.
In The Day of the Jackal, they say “Monsieur Charles” instead to keep their identity secret.
The first letter can also stand for a country or group like Mission Impossible’s Margo Lane (Lara Lorin) who represented either Russia or MI13 and was in love with another spy called Dominique Paradis (Roger Van Der Heyden).
Another popular code name that has been used by many fictional spies is W – as it sounds like the French word ouï which means “to listen.” This explains why so many fictional spies have this nickname, such as James Bond, aka 0070. John Drake from Spy Kids also had this nickname.
The list goes on and includes more interesting spy code names. One of the most famous is Agent 00, a nickname for James Bond who was assigned to NATO by M – as he did not have an actual name in this movie or book series.
Another popular fictional spy with the number 00 badge is John Drake from Spy Kids (2001).
Agent 333 from The Manchurian Candidate (1962) has also used it before. This character represents America’s CIA agency which would either stand for Central This is an intelligence agency. It could represent 3 different countries: Canada, Ireland, Italy.
Agent 077 from a James Bond short story called For Your Eyes Only (1960) is another to use this. This agent has been given the name by his superiors in order for him to remain anonymous while on assignment. However, he also knows that if anything happens to him during an operation then M or someone else will be able to call up all information and data about Agent 0077’s mission and history with NATO Intelligence.
In other words, any spy code names can represent more than one person because of their anonymity as well as being assigned numbers for specific missions or operations which they may not have had before at that point in time without ever revealing who they really are behind those numbers – just like how John Drake was only known
