Telescope Names

Randall Munroe of xkcd has a list of imaginative names for new telescopes in his latest comic.

The Very Large Telescope and the Extremely Large Telescope are real. Even the Overwhelmingly Large Telescope was a real project before it was cancelled.

It can't be that astronomers don't have an imagination for naming things -maybe they are just keeping the really good names for planets and stuff.
