Under the Canadian Path, the proposed new name of a Six (a group of Cub Scouts within a Pack) is Lair.

While it makes a lot of sense, and fits in better with the Jungle Book symbolic framework, it goes against nearly a century of tradition.

A group of wolves would stay in a lair, not a six. The leader of a lair would be an alpha, not a sixer. The new term to replace second (which is usually mistakingly called seconder). This has often lead to further confusion, as one stripe is a second, two stripes is a sixer, a numerical mismatch.

There is also talk of new names for Cub Scouts as the proceed along their journey. Can someone please fill them in here?
