You have to speak the phrase "One Eyed Deer", hear what it sounds like, and think of old Archimedes in his bathtub.
Oh, never mind.

Combining Richard and Art's suggestions you can get kind of an Irish name: McKey
Seriously, I would prefer to leave him unnamed. I dunno why: maybe I just like the anonymity of it.
