Weren't the astronauts going to name the capsule on launch day?
I missed it myself but yes they named it Endeavour - from BBC:

Earlier, Hurley and Behnken named their Dragon ship in the time-honoured tradition of US spacefarers. They called it "Endeavour", in part to celebrate the new course being set by Nasa and its commercial partners, but also to acknowledge the past contribution to American space efforts by Shuttle Endeavour, on which both Hurley and Behnken served in the late 2000s.

Thanks, I did finally get that today but, like you, missed the announcement.

Bit of a lack of imagination, I love the SpaceX naming of the barges.
