I have seen he 0-8-8-0 called the Angus class. Also, at one time, had
8 or 9 names for the 4-8-4'
Don't recall which ones I had that you do not.

Rather than try to figure out how to put this in Files, or ask Roger
Link to do it, I thought I'd send this out as an email. 
This is the result of decades of digging.  This is the most complete
list I've seen, but I am absolutely not saying that it is COMPLETE.  I
welcome supplementation--with some references if possible.  Now I've
ignored the number nicknames ("The Big Sixes, the 600's,)and the
"affectionate" nicknames (the Big Emmas).  Yes, I left in Chesapeake
because....well, because.  Purely my own opinion, but I have
disregarded tank engines.  To me the CNJ 4-6-4T is not a Hudson, and
the German 2-8-4T, although interesting, is not a Berk.
Take your shots, but please read the notes at the bottom first.
