Im not specialized in marketing, but ive been using linux and fedora for
enough time to see that codenames are actually a flag that identify the
release of a distribution. Maybe not in fedora as we usually call the
release by its number (6 ,7 ,8 ...) but some other people rather call it
by its codename, for example ubuntu users (now please dont start flaming
about this comment... keep reading). 

If the marketing team try to make a good name out of fedora, and reach
to the most people out there that could be a potential user (also
including those ubuntu users... we cant ignore that market) showing the
benefits of fedora, i think we are screwing things up with this
codenames slection... People always judge the book by its cover, so we
need something appealing
