  1. American listener chiming in here. The Hunter team names are literally “A, B, C.” They’re using the military phonetic alphabet “Alpha, Baker, Charlie,” etc. “Echo” is just what comes between “Delta” & “Foxtrot.”

    “Buck” is not a particularly uncommon name in parts of the US. It’s usually, but not always, a nickname instead of a given name. (But then, there are parts of the American south where “Bubba” could be a given name.) US vs. UK English sometimes trips me up: is “buck” not used for male deer in the UK? “Stag” of course is the other term, but “8-point buck” or “10-point buck” is common hunter parlance over here. So “Buck” is meant to be a manly sobriquet.

    Very much enjoying the Hunted podcasts!
