- Feel free to add/delete/change it, my goal was in giving us a starting point with basic conjecture based on what we see in-game. I got rid of everything that was silly conjecture, not sure what I was thinking, obviously I got carried away, sorry! =) Jlmr (talk) 18:52, 20 October 2012 (UTC)
- Ok, huge new theory - humans evolved to be similar to Kerbals today, not needing much leg or brain power as the technology does it for them. A nice planet was found, and the decision was made to colonize it. A huge ship was sent, and it was attacked by the Kraken. All the people in it were fine, unlike the spaceship (which may have caused the huge crater in Kerbin). Multiple recon missions were sent, all being devoured by the Kraken. The humans used basic knowledge (Such as processing iron ore makes iron) and made basic technology akin to ours today.
- Maybe the Kerbals have a caste system where each caste is bound to a specific profession, and "Kerman" is the name of the pilot caste? --Crush (talk) 06:49, 4 June 2013 (CDT)
- In Kerbal's video game "Return to Kerbal Space Program" humans' names are all in form of "First name + Earman" to show they are human. Other part of the name is omitted. ——Cesrate (talk) 07:47, 4 June 2013 (CDT)
There be a list of all of the Kerbonaughts' names
I think that there be a list of all of the Kerbonaughts' names on the page. I don't know if there is a full list of names in the game files, but if not, people could add new names as they find them.
Proof of concept:
- Jebediah Kerman
- Bill Kerman
- Bob Kerman
- <Name> Kerman
And so on...
Just a thought,

- There was already a list on the Crew article. But I don't think this is helpful. I don't know how the names are generated, but the existing list was already pretty long and didn't provide that much information. And the first three standard crewmen are already listed. — xZise [talk] 18:47, 3 August 2013 (CDT)
Valentina's name because of Valentines day
Hi, I have my doubts about the reference to the Valentines day. If they really wanted referring to it, shouldn't they post it on the actual day and not a week later? I'd like to see an official comment which shows that both are related and it's not because of Valentina Tereshkova who was actually the first woman in space? — xZise [talk] 03:33, 24 February 2015 (CST)
- I have no doubt at all that it's a reference to Valentina, not St. Valentine and not Valentine's Day. Her name is "Valentina" and she is suited up to go to space. There are no hearts or lovey-dovey symbols around her. I expect the original commenter of this theory wasn't aware of her (neither was I until recently). --Brendan (talk) 17:00, 24 February 2015 (CST)
Response to above thread
I do believe your thinking, and i now believe that Valentina come from the name Valentina Tereshkova. But still, maybe it is still a reference and it was a coincidence that both of those coincide to some degree (especially Valentina Tereshkova.) ~Guacamolekerman
