    Because she almost died in a fire, inspired by that origin.

    Hmm that'd need a lot of time to explain in a book, but it could work I guess.

    I'm not very fond of this codename myself but it's still better than any other suggestion I've seen so far.
    This. If it's that offensive in Italian (which, BTW there's a town named Troia in Italy, so) then just rename her in Italian reprints or something....

    It's also why I would like Artemis to be Warrior Woman or Wonder Warrior.
    It;s just too derivative, imo. Wonder Girl? sure. But everyone else should have their own code name that isn't so directly tied to WW. Even in the bat family we have characters that aren't Bat-related in name...

    Also, it's a fairly common picnic "salad" made with fruit, sour cream, marshmallows.... so, hard pass on the use as a code name
