Dog Trick Name Suggestions

What would be the verbal cue for Lift Both Your Left Legs/Lift Both Your Right Legs? I don't know how many years ago we tried first learning the trick in Silvia's Puppy Class and made no headway. I never had the right apparatus for her to target. She would always try to perch or give me back feet or all four on. But we took the little coat rack and shelves that my brother made for his apartment down and brought it home and when turned over and placed upside down on the ground it provides the perfect slanty surface and it's the perfect length and also--this is key--a sort of slippery surface so she isn't putting her weight on the feet she lifts to it. And she's just started to get both of the same side feet on the third session. So I figure its time to introduce the cue but I suck at naming these things and I don't remember what people were calling it Silvia's class... Suggestions?

It always makes me laugh the way Silvia calls it 'side legs' I don't know why

I call it "lean", same command for either side, difference is which way I am leaning.

Oh, how about "Tippy!"

My mom had a dog named Tippy before I was born. I love that name.
