The 340-ton megalith slowly making its way to the Los Angeles County Museum of Art has been called many things – LACMA Rock, giant boulder, Levitated Mass.
So, we asked: What do you think the rock should be named?

More than 130 NBC 4 Facebook fans weighed in a possible moniker for the massive rock.
Here are some of your suggestions:
Rock of Ages (Complete with a Def Leppard dedication performance)
The Rock of Angels
Waldo (Referring to the rock’s nomadic lifestyle, and the search possibilities)
SWEET MOTHER OF GOD (The caps seemed appropriate to keep)
The Big 1 Hits L.A. (Oh, hope that doesn’t jinx anything)
OILA: Only In Los Angeles
Lil Capitan (Related to the granite behemoth El Capitan in Yellowstone? Clever AND scientific, kudos.)
Rock A. Billy
Emmert (An homage to the company moving the huge rock)
Some waxed ironic:
Others went in a political direction:
The rock headed to LACMA during an 11-night, 8-mile per hour journey has garnered a following almost as large as the rock itself.
Still, some NBC LA Facebook fans weren’t as taken with the giant boulder.
Much Ado About Nothing
Stupid Waste of Time and Gas (A little long, but we get the point)
Waste of Money (This one was popular)
No "BIG" Deal
Whatever you call it, the
privately-funded art piece will be home at LACMA as "Levitated Mass" on March 9.
