Exactly how these codenames are decided remains a mystery, and indeed some suggest that there is meaning to be found hidden in their selection.
Such a theory is encouraged by the eagerness with which Microsoft representatives suggest that we should not attach too much significance to codenames, even implying the names are selected almost at random.
The problem is that, with the amount projects Microsoft is working on, it’s really hard for us to keep track of all the codenames.

Well, Microsoft's Robert Scoble sought to find out what was going on with all the poor product name choices, and what he discovered was rather interesting: sometimes lame names are the only options a company has.
Smith told Scoble that teams should really discuss codenames before using them and that some of the best names are ones which don't exist in search engines.
I think it's telling that Microsoft's strategy is to have bland generic product names that won't offend anyone, rather than risking anything -- because they've come to believe that they don't have to take any risks to grow sales.
