What would you name Planets 9 and X

I read an article that said mathematically Planet 9 exists (Pluto, no longer is a planet).   It's about the size of Neptune and takes 10,000 - 20,000  years to orbit the sun.   It's about 20 billion to 100 billion miles away.

 

 

They expect it will be seen within 5 years to confirm it's existence, and while it will likely be discovered by a space telescope ......

 

 

 

 

 

.... depending on where in its egg shaped orbit it is,  it may pass close enough to earth to be seen by a good backyard telescope. 

 

 

 

If you spot it first,   do you don't you get to name it?    

 

 

 

Planet X may also exist

I think   "Eureka" it is the perfect name for the  newly discovered  planet; it's my first choice.
