Astronaut = dud because of bad ass puns.
Taikonaut = dud because it makes me think of Tonka Trucks, and that's not a good implication for spacecraft.
So cosmonaut.

I like cosmonaut too, it's more swashbuckling.

I'm in general agreement. The Soviets got there first == the soviets get dibs on the best title.

Taikonauts have better food and therefore win

The government did have this to say, however: After finishing lunch, Yang got out his sleeping bag and took a three-hour nap.

Kosmonaut Kicks Ass!

Taikonaut really is a bit "look, we can have a posh scientific name, too", isn't it?

(And what is it with always having the suffix "naut" when really, what does space have to do with the sea?)
