Unfortunately that won't work, as all names have to be cleared by
Legal.  The ability to suggest names for the upcoming Fedora release is
a honor we grant people who put up with the traffic on
fedora-devel-list, and participate in the ongoing development of
Fedora.  It used to be something exclusive to Red Hat employees, but
over the years we've opened it a bit more.  However it's not a free for
all, and it is a bonus for those that are doing a lot of the work.  If
you want the ability to add suggestions, be on that list near the start
of a development cycle when the call for suggestions goes out.  We take
all the reasonable suggestions that follow the formula and run them
through Red Hat's legal team (not a small cost) to find the names that
would be acceptable should they be chosen.  Then the vote is provided
for a larger set of folks.  That's how it happens.
