The asteroids are (151834) 2003 FB122  and one to be labeled later.  This Planetary Society blog post gives for information about the first asteroid.

Ufi is a village of 13 people in Iran. Tell 'em we're doing it in hopes of fostering peaceful cooperation between all newly-spacefaring nations (drop subtle hints that spacefaring is pretty new to every nation on earth, even the US and Russia) and we just might be able to pull it off.

37inarow for the one that crashes into us.  Just so I can giggle at the news commentator that has to say, "Two more days until 37inarow kills us all".  Especially if she's hot.

Came to say Beavis and Butthead, but I see Whatthefark covered it.

If they're likely to hit Earth, why not Republican and Democrat? Those two are already destroying our country; let's share the misery.

Rock 1
Rock 2

Plus, you could continue the nomenclature for future asteroids! "Rock 3" would be suitable, as would "Rock 4" and "Rock 5". You could presumably do this until you run out of numbers, which is like a thousand or something. No way there are that many of anything, so you're set!

Brilliant in its simplicity.
 
2013-10-24 10:27:29 PM
"Nothing to Worry About" and "Don't Panic, Everything Is Fine" would be awesome names, especially if the asteroids started to threaten the Earth.

I nominate 'Klendathu' and 'Eddore'.

(I'm a SysAdmin for a web development group. The convention for our servers is to name them for astronomical bodies in the Solar System. We've gone through the planets, most moons and major asteroids, and are getting down to the gravel.

One time, we were expecting two servers to arrive for a client's order, and four servers showed up instead.

No one could ever figure out where the extra two came from. Since they didn't officially exist, I named them Klendathu and Eddore. )
