Q: Why's UberX named UberX?

A: 'The name of the service, UberX, was simply the best the company could come up with. "It was a placeholder. We called it UberX because we couldn't figure out a name for it," says Uber's product chief at the time, Mina Radhakrishnan, who adds that Uber Green and Uber Eco were briefly considered and rejected.'
