Dean Esmay has a thread going for naming that tenth planet beyond the orbit of Pluto.
Feel free to recommend a name in Comments. I am mentioning a few here in the hopes that I won't see them again:
- Robert C. Byrd
- Earth II (or, worse, "Earth ][")

Inishans (he's got the whole world....)
Garp (the world according to...)
Muneemaaks (...the world go around)
Many years ago it was called Charon....what happened?
It was determined that Charon orbits, not the sun, but Pluto itself; it's been reclassified as a moon of Pluto.
(Wikipedia entry here.)
Orpheus or Eurydice spring to mind.....
What's wrong with the name they were going to use, Xena?
Call the little traveler "Pallino" after the small ball in the game of Bocce.
