come to think of it. what will be the names of the viruses

Bagle.AA,AB,AC, etc.

Obvious, ain't it?

Its an (English) alphabetic counting system...

And on and on it goes, and where it ends, nobody knows.......

Indeed.

The most extreme example I am aware of is the Laroux family of Excel 
VBA macro viruses -- the most recently discovered variant of this 
family is officially known as W97M/Laroux.OT, but the rate of new 
discoveries in this family has slowed greatly, so I doubt it will ever 
reach the .AAA stage...
