"Don't tell them my last name"

why would Miles be worried about "strom" do we know any strom's? or did he just not want to give the losties too much info?

i rekon he just didn't want to give too much information away to them off why they were there keeping up the illusion of who these mystery 4 are? But yay for ben and his spies. Im sure it will definatly become relevant.

My guess is he's just a very high strung kind of guy...very agressive...was just being defensive?

It sounds like an odd name, it may mean something.  The only thing I can think of so far is that it sounds like the word maelstrom:

1. a large, powerful, or violent whirlpool. 
2. a restless, disordered, or tumultuous state of affairs: the maelstrom of war.
3. (initial capital letter) a famous hazardous whirlpool off the NW coast of Norway.

With a little imagination we could relate any of these definitions to the show, but we'd probably be grasping at straws.

And when Miles took the sat-phone and called back to the boat, didn't he ask to speak to Mikhail (and was told he can't come to the phone right now)? Or did I mishear that name??

Yes, 'strom' means storm, but his name is spelled "Straume".  Together they do sound like "maelstrom", which may be the only trivial point to it (rather than being similar to the name of someone else).  There is also a small town (and a few other places) in Norway with that name.

No last name because he is sick of getting the Dharma junk mail.

Welcome Aussie.

I tend to agree, but I wouldn't be too surprised if Miles had a relative who was one of the victims of Dharmacaust. If so, he might not want to take a chance on revealing that connection till he knows more about the folks he's talking to.
