how about Bing Assistant, or BingAss™?

Personally and maybe its me but the name needs to be something that roll off the tong, too many syllables in Cortana.  For all you know Microsoft will just call the assistant Bing....

 

I think it should be called ChandlerBing.Chandler-chandler-bing-32088248-1600-900

MS sadly enough never keeps there Codenames for the final product

Bing had a much nicer sounding codename too. Was it Kumo?

No, IIRC Kumo was one of the finalists for name.
