After first considering a list of other naming possibilities "The Dukes of Stratosphere", "Terry and the Lovemen" and "The Three Wise Men", the members finally decided on XTC. The lead singer Andy Partridge once said that the name came to him upon watching an old Jimmy Durante film wherein apparently Jimmy says, "That's it, I'm in ecs-ta-sy!". Later, the band went on to produce albums under the name "The Dukes of Stratosphere".
