I vote for using Genesis albums and/or song names. For instance, how about "Fedora 18: Land of Confusion" (suppose a radical Gnome 4.0 comes along ;-P). Or "Fedora 19: I can't dance". Fedora 20: Invisible Touch
Over twenty years ago, some SF fans started a new convention, media oriented with a strong bias toward Dr. Who. They named it Gallifrey. As many new conventions do, Gallifrey One went deeply into debt, and the organizers swore that there'd never be a Gallifrey Two until the debt was paid off.
Next year was Gallifrey One, The Sequel. This was followed by Gallifrey One in 3-D, Gallifrey One Goes Fourth and so on. Gallifrey One is now old enough to vote. (Yes, the debt was paid off long ago.) I mention this to show how easy it can be to be clever when you're naming things. BTW, the complete list is in the Wikipedia article if you're either interested or want to see how many of the references you can catch.
