What do you call the offspring of a whale and a dolphin?

A Wholphin. This is actually a real thing!

wholphin or wolphin is an extremely rare hybrid born from a mating of a female bottlenose dolphin (Tursiops truncatus) with a maleFalse Killer Whale (Pseudorca crassidens). The name implies a hybrid of whale and dolphin, although taxonomically, both are within the “oceanic dolphin” family, which is within the “toothed whale” suborder.[1][2] Although they have been reported to exist in the wild,[2]there is currently only one in captivity, at Sea Life Park in Hawaii.
