First, giant font sizes are you shouting at us. Make it smaller. The blue color is unnecessary, too. And you should give your opinion on the topic and maybe some background.

Got it?

Suggestion: Vulcan.

Reason: It keeps in line with the current convention of naming the planets after Roman Gods and Goddesses, it's where we get the word Volcano from, and it's the Half home world of Spock which is a nice Sci Fi reference.

Apollo. Keeps in line with the process of naming planets after Roman Gods and gives mention to the most advanced ventures into space thus far.

Technically, this should be in the OP. I'm still waiting for you to make the OP look normal and to provide some sources for there being an object larger than Pluto out there.

I don't know what an OP is, and I'm busy looking for something on it (what am I kidding this will be locked down with in the hour even if I followed everything to the best of my ability).

I think I'll go create a fact book to list the suggestions, and then I'll set up a poll for them.

That is also part of the reason behind the name; the name 'Apollo' refers to both the space program and the Roman/Greek God.
