MArk Hedden's frog (WFH in Betza notation) is taken from Adrian Kings games (Sciroco, Jupiter, and Typhoon). To distinguish it from Jelliss' frog (FH in Betza notation) one could call it frog king (derived from crowned frog, crowned being a standard prefix for forming names for pieces moving as a commoner + something).
