Cliff, when we reference badge designs with names like Juarez, Dondero, Panama, Firmin, Link, and Robbins, each name conjures-up a specific wing pattern. You need to select a reference name for this newly confirmed and unique wing pattern.
You could name the pattern in honor of your friend who helped make the wing identification possible.
I think that is a great idea! The Whitlock or the Kirtland. I think the "Whitlock" sounds better, roles off the tongue nicely.
P.S. I added a memorial for Mr. Whitlock on Find-A-Grave for those whom wish to pay there respects.
