Default Name for leech?

I have made an incredibly successful leech pattern made of marabou and dubbing that beats a wooly bugger in leech imitation.(if worked correctly)

I need a good or funny name for this fly. But to give you more info about it, heres a typed set of directions for it, as my camera stinks at fly pictures.

Hook:Any size
Lead covering:dubbing(black)
Body:Marabou(black)
Thread:black (or matching color)
1.)To start it, put lead on the top of the hook and secure with thread.
2.)Bring the thread behind the eyelet, and tie in a small patch of marabou, about 2x as long as the hook.
3.)Then start your dubbing, and cover the lead.
4.)Just like a wooly bugger, tie on some marabou the length of the hook at the end of the hook.

Now to see how well it looks like a leech, dip it in a cup of water. But jog it a bit, as it doesn't absorb water immediately.

So any ideas for a name?

Hi Fishplease,

Well it would be a lot better to see one. How about the obvious, call it a Marabou Leech. If you want to personalize it why not use your first name. For instance: Joe's Marabou Leech. I don't know your first name so I just stuck Joe in there.

On the leech theme: the "Supasucka" or "super-sucker"

Wouldn't it be easier to tie lead, tail, dubbing or chenille, then your 2X wing instead of lead, wing, dubbing and ending at the tail? Maybe I'm missing something. It does sound like it would be fishy.
