As we are approaching the first "ready" Beta hardware revisions I was thinking about how we could call the assemblies/releases that we will soon offer to the first developers from crowdfunding. Obviously we could start with a numbering scheme 0.1, 0.2 etc. but that will likely start getting confusing once we hit the 0.10 and 0.11 releases that look the same as 0.1 or 0.1.1... keep in mind we have a lot of backers without a software developer background.
So one idea was to do something similar as Ubuntu and give the releases speaking names in alphabetical order (not necessarily animals). Cameras have historically often been named after women... so what about this tradition? http://www.randomnames.com/all-girls-names-beginning-with-A.asp
Also we could indicate the target audience in the name as the very first revisions will likely be suitable for developers only:
Developer AXIOM Beta I - April
Developer AXIOM Beta II - Becky
Developer AXIOM Beta III - Connie
Adopter AXIOM Beta IV - Dora
