    They are cycle X and cycle B2, respectively. It is safe to just use B however, since there's such great distance in time between Breezy Badger and Bionic Beaver, they can never be confused and only one B exists at any one time.

    But you only ever deal with code names when you're doing things manually, in which case you'll probably already know these things or at least have access to Google to easily look it up.

    This is long past old. Get rid of the idiotic names already. At least versions based on release dates make sense and are easy to remember.

    No, Mark Shuttleworth put out the list of future code names, out of which my fav is Moaning Mermaid.

    It's not that hard if you know the LTS codenames (and know your alphabet), especially now that the non-LTS releases only last 9 months and you don't see as many references to them.
