I was also taught "MYSTERY FRIEND/PAL". Mystery friends write mystery letters to their mates.
If you say you have a SECRET friend it suggests that other people don´t know who it is but you do, nonetheless, if you say you have a MYSTERY FRIEND it suggests that nobody knows who it is, including yourself. In other words: If you are my SECRET friend I know who you are; If you are my mystery friend I don´t know who you are.
