Is there any reason we can't change that process to align with the longer term planning that's happening around these things?

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.
