The lunar module was named Eagle for the national bird of the United States, the Bald Eagle (19 pics), and featured prominently on the mission insignia. The command module was named Columbia for the feminine personification of the United States used traditionally in song and poetry. During early mission planning, the names Snowcone and Haystack were used but changed before announcement to the press.
