A Shortfall of Gravitas

Apparently, the latest of SpaceX's floating drone ships where the first stage lands (assuming all goes well) is named "A Shortfall of Gravitas". I have the feeling that this particular name was extracted from some screed by some snarky commentator complaining about how SpaceX's naming conventions have a shortfall of gravitas. My Internet searches have yet to turn up the source though.

I rather approve of these naming conventions. :)
