I personally prefer it without code name instead of version number , don’t like going from software to multiple versions, then encrypting it so that no ordinary human beings cannot understand, I’m having hard time explaining Gnome,Mate,KDEs to my family, let along synaptics, GRUB.
They do however understand names like FreeCAD,TaskManager easily , even my grandpa

What about “Ghido” from Final Fantasy 7.

Great Ghido
Galactic Ghido

“Being a sage, Ghido is wise, knowledgeable of the events that happened in the past and the twelve legendary weapons. He can be irritable, getting annoyed when Bartz thinks that he’s just an ordinary turtle. Ghido thus has a low opinion on Bartz, believing him to be slow. Ghido is used to people revering him, as is with the scholars at the Library of the Ancients.”
