It's always fun to have a screenshot thread, so I'll get us started with some funny soldier names (all natural and unedited).
Bobby "Bo Knows" Jackson!
Unfortunately, I hired him kinda late in the game so I was unable to beef up his stats much. I think he ended up with 5 missions and 6 kills or something. Not bad.
How about Colonel Sanders from Kentucky Fried Chicken?
I didn't really think about this guy much until one day he got promoted. His first name isn't Harland so this isn't a perfect match, but still. He was a real beast with the Mag Rifle though. Because of his unreal reaction stat, I could park him by a lift and he'd pick off the aliens as they would filter down. Technically I should have given him the Mag Carbine as you can get better reactions from that, but I was training other soldiers up with it.

Zombie: Empirical data's your only man, when formulating a research plan.
A soldier's death is never in vain if it makes the formula more plain.
A few dozen make a better case for refining that third decimal place.
They call me Zombie because I don't sleep, as I slowly struggle to climb this heap,
of corpses, data points, and trials, but from the top - I'll see for miles!
