NATO reporting names were code names for Soviet equipment.
Much of that equipment can still be found in use around the world, and those names are still used to refer to it.
The initial letter of the name indicated something about the use of that equipment; for example, fighter airplanes were assigned names beginning with the letter "F," and surface-to-surface missiles' names began with "S." For airplanes, names with one syllable are used for propeller engines while two syllable names indicate jet engines.

 YouTube - TU-95 (NATO reporting name:Bear)
The Tupolev Tu-95 (NATO reporting name Bear) is the most successful Tupolev strategic bomber and missile carrier from the times of the Soviet Union, still in service as of 2006 and expected to remain in service with the Russian Air Force until at least 2010 [1].
Unusually, Soviet pilots found the Tu-95/Tu-142's NATO reporting name, 'Bear,' to be a fitting nickname, given the aircraft's large size, 'lumbering' maneuverability and speed, and large arsenal.
An anecdotal story states that it was actually a Russian crew who had the privilege of assigning the NATO reporting name; during the aircraft's Paris Airshow debut, a Western reporter asked the crew what the plane's name was.

 NATO Speech: Q&A NATO SecGen Lord Robertson, World Economic Forum, Davos-Switzerland, 27 January 2003
But NATO is very much committed, by a decision taken by all of the countries, all 19 NATO countries in November at the summit in Prague to offering effective assistance to the United Nations in relation to full and unconditional compliance by Saddam Hussein with resolution 1441.
The Herald Tribune last week was reporting that NATO had postponed a decision on Wednesday on a U.S. request for six measures to support a possible war and that - I guess because of the risk amongst the various NATO members - that there were difficulties and so, NATO was wavering.
NATO is already engaged in Afghanistan in supporting the German and Netherlands elite(?) for what is known as ISAF 3, the International Security and Assistance Force and a sub-iteration which starts on the 15th of February, when they take over from Turkey.

  Nato reporting name - ARRSEpedia
NATO reporting names are code names for Soviet and Chinese military equipment.
These were created to facilitate communications between military units speaking different languages and because in most cases the actual name of the equipment was unknown or did not exist, and in many cases were not known for many years.
Perhaps the most famous reporting name is that of the SS-1 ballistic missile, the "Scud".

 NATO Reporting Name@Everything2.com
There are a few exceptions to this scheme; for example, the Typhoon class ballistic missile sub was named after Leonid Brezhnev referred to it as 'Tayfun' in a speech; that name appears to have been dropped on their end, but stuck in NATO usage.
NATO started out using Russian words beginning with 'K' to designate classes of surface ships, but has generally switched to naming the class after the first ship of the class built, for example, the Slava class guided missile cruiser.
Despite the intelligence community convention of putting reporting names in all caps, I'll be using mixed-case names in my writeups to avoid the implication that they might be acronyms.

 CONTEXT - This Week in Arts and Ideas from The Moscow Times
The Soviet bureaucracy named the winner the AK-47, an acronym derived from avtomat Kalashnikova, the automatic by Mikhail Kalashnikov, an all but unknown Army senior sergeant, followed by the last two digits of the year of field trials.
But the name has endured, clinging to almost any weapon built on the underlying design and retaining its distinctive shape.
On the one hand, it is refreshing to hear the general unplugged, even if he is careful not to mention the Kremlin's current occupant (old habits and cautions, it seems, do not die).

 NATO Handbook: The NATO (SHAPE) School
More recently, following the introduction of NATO's new Strategic Concept in 1991, the role of the School was fundamentally altered to include courses, training and seminars in support of NATO's current and developing strategy and policies, including cooperation and dialogue with military and civilian personnel from non-NATO countries.
In addition, since the beginning of NATO operations in Bosnia in the context of IFOR and SFOR, the School provides indirect support to current NATO military operations.
This is designed to educate NATO and Partner Operational Staff Officers in NATO doctrine and procedures for use in NATO-led Combined Joint Headquarters for Peace Support Operations.

Its early version air-to-air missiles, the Vympel K-13 (NATO reporting name AA-2 'Atoll'), were not successful in combat, and its gyro gunsight was easily thrown off in high-speed maneuvers, making the initial version of the MiG-21 an ineffective aircraft.
Except during the NATO intervention, the aircraft had no air opposition and was mainly used in a ground-attack role.
During the NATO intervention, a substantial number of them was destroyed on the ground.

 NATO reporting name - Slider
NATO reporting names were code names for Soviet and Chinese equipment.
Most (though not all) of the time the Soviet pilots didn't use NATO names (or the translations of them), usually because they weren't known for a long time and by later on a different Russian nickname had come into being.
One format that was followed, such as for aircraft types, was that names of a particular role had the first letter of there name start with a certain letter that related to a types name (e.g.

The term comes from the NATO reporting name SS-1 Scud which was attached to the missile by Western intelligence agencies.
The earlier R-1 missile had carried the NATO name SS-1 Scunner, but was of a very different design, almost directly a copy of the German V-2.
The name "Scud" is also used to refer to an Iraqi modification of the same missile.

 Sukhoi Su-9 at AllExperts
The Sukhoi Su-9 (NATO reporting name Fishpot) was a single-engine, all-weather, missile-armed interceptor aircraft developed by the Soviet Union.
The Su-9 had primitive R1L (NATO reporting name 'High Fix') radar in the shock cone and was armed with four K-5 (AA-1 'Alkali') beam-riding air-to-air missiles.
It received the NATO reporting name 'Maiden.' It had a full armament and radar system with displays in both cockpits, allowing trainees to practice all aspects of the interception mission, but because the second seat further reduced the already meager fuel fraction, it was not truly combat-capable.

Iraq diplomatic 'watchers' in Amman have confirmed western intelligence reports indicating that despite a decade of strict sanctions and seven years of UN inspections, Iraq has succeeded over the last three years in potentially redeveloping conventional capabilities and biological (BW) and chemical weapons (CW) with their missile delivery systems.
The CIA appears to agree, reporting that Iraq's "solid- propellant missile development programme may not be receiving a higher priority and development of the (solid-fuelled) Ababil-100 short-range ballistic missile and possibly longer range systems may be moving ahead rapidly".
They reported that the government has been moving many of its security agencies and vital departments to makeshift offices in buildings in and around central Baghdad pointing out that many of the new locations are in commercial or residential buildings.

NATO spokesman Jamie Shea's first response to the Embassy bombing was a) to apologize and b) to explain that the NATO missiles had gone astray.
[NATO military spokesman General Walter] Jertz declined to say what sort of weapon hit the Chinese embassy, except that it was 'smart' or guided munitions and not free-fall bombs.
Therefore the notion that NATO could possess a map drawn before the Chinese Embassy was built which showed any building occupying the land on which the Embassy now stands is simply impossible.

In the Second World War, code names common to the Allies referring to nations, cities, geographical features, military units, military operations, diplomatic meetings, places, and individual persons were agreed upon adapting pre-war naming procedures in use by the governments concerned.
These names were considered by the Soviets as being like a nickname given to one's unit by the opponents in a battle, such as the US Marines were called by the Germans in France "Devil Dogs", which they appreciated as a feather in their cap.
