I agree with Paul here.  Version relationships are important for
technical audiences, and names don't help wirth that.  I don't know
what would help with marketing, but I suspect a general brand would be
more helpful than version codenames.

The only version codename I'm likely to remember is that for Ubuntu 6.04.  :-)
