There is no way this can go wrong

As we all know, asking people on the internet to name something always works out. Every. Single. Time

K-12 students and an essay contest, not random 4channers anonymous poll, so probably not as bad as it might be.

Marsy McMarsface is a good name for it I think. :)

Oh, even when I was in school, I could have written an essay on why it should totally have been named "Rover McRoverface"

But see that's OK.

Much better than "Heil Hitler Slut" or some such.

I could have written one for calling it “Heil Hitler Slut” too

I was both twisted and imaginative in those days

But unlike an anonymous poll, doing it as an essay contest provides some filtering.

I'm thinking of the Mountain Dew thing. I'm guessing so was NASA.

I have the sense of humor of an adolescent. Does that count?

Funny names != going wrong, as long as it's "G" rated such as ed's suggestion of "Boaty McRoverface". :)

Though I must say that "Marsy McMarsface" gets the message across much better. :p

I would name it Santa Claus

But I do know that if you are not a big MST3K fan or otherwise familiar with old really shitty movies, you might not see the humor
