I think Bob and Doug should go with "Mice in a Bottle", "Great White North" or "Elsinore"...

I guess I'm in a minority preferring a serious/meaningful name as opposed to the X's normal inside jokes and nerd callouts

I'd go with Peregrine. Obvious references to the Falcon 9, but also means "wandering" particularly in the sense of a long journey. They can call it Pippin for short for the obligatory nerd references.

I have since read that the Crew Dragon name was inspired by Puff, the magic dragon (new to me). The Falcon was inspired by some guy named Solo!?

Watched the launch today, did not catch a name reveal.
Anybody know what it is?
