Now that GOP presidential front-runners Donald Trump and Ben Carson have Secret Service protection, they also will be getting code names.

The billionaire businessman Trump's is "Mogul" and the Seventh day Adventist neurosurgeon Carson's is "Eli," Fox News reports.

Eli was the Old Testament high priest during the youth of the prophet Samuel.

The 24-hour protection for the two is expected to begin at 8 a.m. ET Wednesday. Also, the names won't be final until that time, so they could change, Fox reported.

The Secret Service assigns a letter to the people it protects and gives them a choice of names beginning with the letter that protectees find acceptable.
