Is that when you referenced that both Lana and Lois got powers but didn't know what they referred to themselves as, the only thing I've found (which was in a Wizard "Superman Tribute Edition" special that they published after the Death of Superman storyline) is that in that particular story, they referred to each other as "Super-Lana" and "Super-Lois". One panel in particular had Lana's costume totally covered in jewels, with Superman replying "I hate to say this, Lana, but... you look like a hussy!" with Lana thinking "Awp! And I thought he'd be... swept off his feet!" with Lois in the background thinking "Super-Lana just doesn't understand Superman! Here's where I show her up!". Haven't read the story in question (and there's not a note stating which issue this was), but it would seem that the just referred to each other with 'Super' attached to their names. Their costumes in this particular story were styled like the traditional Supergirl costume, except Lois' was green and yellow, with a yellow symbol like Superman's and Lana's was yellow and purple (and you can get a glimpse of Lana's costume in "Whatever Happened to the Man of Tomorrow).

As for this: 1958. Superman #123. "The Three Magic Wishes: The Girl of Steel (Part 1).

A color version has been reprinted in the Greatest Superman Stories Ever Told in the 1987 Edition and this has the 'traditional' Supergirl look, blonde hair, traditional colors. I don't believe it's included in the current "Greatest Superman Stories Ever Told" that's currently published by DC Comics.

If I see anything else while reading, I'll point it out!

Super-Lana and Super-Lois? I hadn't heard of that one. Not trying to build "secret identities" that time around, I take it \:\)

(Although I think the Golden Age heroine Liberty Belle's real name was "Libby Belle Lawrence." Apparently she was confident that the people who knew her as Libby would never notice the "coincidental similarities" of her real name to a certain blond crimefighter's alias! And as far as I know, her confidence in the denseness of her friends was richly justified!)
