Or maybe some alliteration? Here's some suggestions [with a handy temperature guide]:

Milds:
1. Millikelvin Mildness [T ~ 10^-3 K]
2. Radiowave Red [radio wave energies ~ 10^-3K]
3. Paramagnetic Pulp [typical paramagnetic interaction energies ~ 10^-1K]
4. Microwave Moderation [CMBR, for instance ~ 10^0 K]

Mediums:
1. Naughty Nitrogen [boiling point ~10^2 K]
2. Infrared Idiocy [typical IR energies ~ 10^2 K]
3. Bunsen Burner [typical flame temperature ~ 10^3 K]
4. Fermi's Fire [Fermi Temperature for common metals and semiconductors ~ 10^4 K]
5. Solar Sauciness [photosphere temperature ~ 10^4 K]

Hots:
1. X-cruciating X-rays [soft x-ray energies ~ 10^5 K, hard x-rays ~ 10^8 K]
2. Coronal Craziness [temperature of corona ~ 10^6 K]
3. Funky Fusion [small nucleii fuse at ~10^7 K, larger ones at ~ 10^8 K]
4. Supernova Strong [T ~ 10^10 K]

Extremely-hots:
1. Hunting Hardons Hadrons [Fermi melting point of hadrons ~ 10^12 K]
2. Annihilating Anti-protons [10^15 K]
3. Certainly CERN [energies at the LHC ~ 10^18 K]
4. Cosmic Concoction [typical cosmic ray events ~ 10^22+ K]
5. Petrified Planck [Planck Temperature ~ 10^32 K]

PS, for Rhody: Hunting Hadrons is also a reference to the QGP
