Comet me, bro: Naming a comet

The comet C/2022 E3 (ZTF)  became quite the celestial celebrity in early 2023. The comet passed by the Earth for the first time in 50,000 years!  A once-in-a-lifetime sight. Sadly, this comet’s flattened circular shape means that a tiny change can drastically alter its orbit. This time, it looks like it’s on its way out of our solar system.


Let’s say good bye to comet C/2022 E3 (ZTF) by giving it a truly memorable name. What should we call comet C/2022 E3 (ZTF)?
