That sounds fair. However the release naming process currently states[1]:

The process to chose the name for a release begins once the location of
the design summit of the release to be named is announced and no sooner
than the opening of development of the previous release.

...which if I read it correctly means we could pick N now, but not O. We
might want to change that (again) first.
