Why does it have to still have the "Top" in the name?? Its not just a hump up front like a 747, its got a whole new deck. So in my opinion they wont carry on the "Top" into the A380. Why? Whole new aicraft, and it has a complete top deck not just a hump.

I think SIA would adopt a much artistic name (something to do with their Singapore girls) instead of a boring computer hard disk like name. Well, this was being proven with their A340 (Celestar) and B777 (Jubilee).

Hmm. But the A380 isn't artisitc that's the point. The A340 and 777 signify elegant names and swishy-swoshy. But the 747 is bulky hence Top, and the A380, well that's just a beautiful fat elephant. So an artistic name wouldn't really fit.
