    It's a very good name to fantasize about while masturbating. It's a powerful name, one you can scream out when reaching orgasm, it will make you ejaculate at level #2:

    I mean, I guess we have a branch of the military called "Air Force" which would probably sound just as ridiculous if we were not accustomed to it.

    On one hand, I like it because it sounds futuristic. On the other, I’d rather the name be something more creative and/or over the top.

    It's straight and to the point. Martial types hate with a passion those who try to overcomplicate things. As you'd want said martial types to sign up you'd best adhere to the KISS doctrine. Keep it Simple Stupid. Thus, good name.

    Rename the present President to Blow Force. Blofeld is taken, anyway.

    I prefer the Netflix version of Space Force. Pretty hilarious.

    Why would it be a stupid name? Name is the same thing as Air Force except with a focus on space, which is exactly what they are.
