Name needed for Uranus probe (2024?)

From this thread we learned that a $4 billion probe is likely going to Uranus, but it needs a name.

I suggested "George" (Herschel's original name for Uranus) in that thread, but I got little support. ;)

Perhaps Clymene, a consort of Uranus.

No way. If we have something that aliens might find someday, DO NOT NAME IT GEORGE!!!!! Maybe Zeus?

I am NOT touching this with a 10 foot pole or anything else. This has to be a setup.

Why not call it Herschel? It fits with the Galileo and Cassini heritage. The name isn't currently in use, there was a Herschel infrared space telescope but it's now decommissioned.
