We could, theoretically, just add "No Name, F18 and beyond" in the list with all other release names, in one vote. My hesitation here is how well this jives with the voting methodology; it's entirely possible that we could wind up with 30% of votes going to "No name" and 70% of votes being split into fractions of less than 30% amongst multiple release names, which I don't think very accurately represents "I like the release naming process" vs. "I dislike it, please discontinue." I could be wrong here, I'm not a range voting expert or a statistician.

That's not the way voting works. It isn't a first past the post voting
scheme. I would expact that people who vote for any name will be very
likely to rate "no name" very low and so even if a lot of people pick
"no name" first, it is unlikely to beat out many names and unless near
50% of the voters make it their first option.

On another note, if you wanted to increase the interest in the elections,
you might consider awarding swag to people who come up with the names
used for the exlection, and maybe bonus swag for the person who came up
with the winning name.
