Why Poke'mon X and Y?

In this post, I spout random theories on reasons the new games are titled as they are. Don't take this post too seriously.
Theory 1: Chromosomes
My original theory, chromosomes are composed of DNA and determine gender. Besides if we're doing recombinant DNA, why can't we name games after it? Of course, if the games are named after chromosomes, I take issue with the colors; the y chromosome is characteristic of the male gender and is red. I mean, they could have at least made it pink.
Theory 2: Axes
No not axes like the weapons, axes like plural of axis. This is my current theory and it makes a decent amount of sense; this is the 3-D generation of Pokemon and 3-D has three axes: the x, y, and z. Plus that gives us our third game.
Theory 3: Variables
X, and Y are among the most commonly used variables. It's always possible Pokemon decided that they wanted to make the game even more mathy than they did with IV's, EV's, base stats, boosting moves, typing, STAB, weather effects, double battle mechanics, damage variation, probability, items... you get my point.
Theory 4: Theory X and Theory Y
Maybe Pokemon designers really like psychology; Theory X and Theory Y are theories centered around human motivation. And there's also a Theory Z!
Theory 5: Coldplay
Maybe Pokemon really likes Coldplay and wanted to name a pair of games after one of Coldplay's albums... Yeah. I think I'll stop before I write down any more completely idiotic things.
