Somebody has to know the origin of the name “Falcon Heavy”? Please tell me…

Somebody has to know the origin of the name “Falcon Heavy”? Please tell me it’s derived from some conversation at the design stage, like this:
Elon, looking at the schematics: “This rocket is going to be f**king heavy”
Buddy: “Yeah it is”
Elon: “Let’s call it that”
Buddy: “Let’s call it what?”
Elon: “Let’s call the rocket f**king heavy!”
Buddy: “You can’t call it that Elon if you want any publicity at all. Think of the wee children”
Elon: “Alright, alright then…how about Falcon Heavy”
Buddy: “Ha ha ha. Yeah. Sounds exactly the same but I’m sure nobody will notice. Wink wink!”
