I think the idea of names only with numbers wouldn't be nice. In other
hand i'd like so much to see the fedora releases names like a theme.
Just like Antonio Trande idea.

Not even using the only numbers is possible to identify the Fedora

Actually i see Fedora 16, 17, 18 too detached by its code names (Verne,
Beefy Miracle, Spherical Cow respectively), as were for the older releases,
but i respected this tradition.
Is for this reason that i have suggested the Roman Emperors names for
Creating an imaginary line (Fedora Codename Theme) that connects all the
releases in the time (in addition to the "cold numbers") , we can identify
more easily a release in my opinion. Over to match a specific release with
an its particular feature, for example
Fedora 20 Trajan released with Grub 3.0, then Fedora 21 Hadrian (Hadrian is
a successor of Trajan) released with Grub 3.1
Too bizarre ? :D
