Vote on your favorite name for the “cheap” iPhone: iPhone 9, iPhone Xc, or iPhone Xr?

And there we were, thinking that those would be the names. But nope, things started brewing again and the rumor mill rumbled and tumbled once more. The cheapest model's name got switched to iPhone Xc, then it got swapped with iPhone Xr. What will be Apple's final call? We will know for sure in about 27 hours.
Until then, let's have some fun:
From all the rumored names for the affordable iPhone we've heard so far, which one do you like best? iPhone 9, iPhone Xc, or iPhone Xr?
Which name do you like best for the LCD iPhone?

I'd vote iPhone 9 if it was keeping the same or similar design language as last years 8. But based on the leaks so far I think the Xc branding would do Apple just fine for this device.

Imagine calling The iPhone 18 something along the lines of "iPhone XSYSOSDFL". Doesn't sound very catchy, eh? I doubt Apple would drop the numbered naming scheme in favor of XC or XR or whatever. I mean the naming would then get difficult and difficult in future for Apple, as 'demonstrated' above. I personally think the upcoming trio is going to be called 9, 9x and 9x Plus or something very similar. Oh well, G'Day! P.S The rumored 828 x 1792 resolution of the bum-basic model is just... HORRIBLE. The original 3310 had better resolution...

Apple needs to just do away with numbering. Just like Macs, they should code model year in the software and simplify the names: iPhone - for regular OLED iPhone Plus - for plus size OLED iPhone C or something similar - for cheaper alternative/LCD
