Can you pick a name for the iPhone X successor?

Ever since it turned out that the "all-screen" OLED iPhone will indeed be called the iPhone X (ten), just as rumored, we couldn't help but wonder how will the naming scheme of Apple's new "bezel-less" iPhone line continue. Needless to say, since the X stands for ten, and Apple is using Roman numerals to denote the new portfolio, the most logical name for an eventual iPhone X successor is iPhone XI. 

Still, Apple might decide to bring the current "surfboard" design iPhones like the 8 and 8 Plus, into the bezel-less line fold by issuing two all-screen phones with different display diagonals next year, and those might be iPhone 9 and iPhone 11, since 10 is already done and dusted, Roman numeral or not. That would leave Apple with an iPhone 9/11 set, however, which is not the most palatable combo one could unveil in the month of September. 

Even more far-fetched would be if Apple switches to letters, instead of numbers for future iPhones, and the next bezel-less wonder gets called iPhone Y. Possibilities, possibilities, tell us which one would you pick, and sound off your prediction arguments in the comments below. Any other options you can think of?

There won't be any iPhone 9 or 10 nor 11, in fact they'll restart their counting with X2, X2 +, X2s and so on.

I imagine next year, there will still be a standard iPhone 9 and 9 Plus alongside the bezel-less iPhone 11.

That is not even funny and in fact quite insensitive. You may have just been joking around but that isn't something to joke about, a lot of ppl lost their lives that day.

I just wanted the X to be a new version of the SE - it makes perfect sense: 10 year anniversary, back to a small, one-handed operation phone like the original yet with a screen similar in size to the 7, win/win. The new pull down gestures for Control Centre would be reachable, the phone could be thicker with rounded edges to cram the newer stuff in (and still keep camera flush) since the old 11mm thick 3G felt much better in hand than the giant new phones and I'm sure it would be hugely popular. I'd happily pay more for that than a 6/7/8 rehash. The name would be perfect in marketing terms - The SE-X.

I don't care what they call it. As long as the SoC inside of it is still 2.5 years ahead of it's closest competition, and apps are still better on iOS, it's the phone I'll likely get. Just don't call it something idiotic like "iPhone luxura" or other corny ass names, and we're good.
