I also seem to remember voting in the past as a non-ATC and even campaigned for Juno above Jekyll (for branding reasons). 

We use the code names heavily in our end user communication (to explain what upgrades we are applying, where we are with the feature set installed compared to the release notes on the 'net) and it would be negative if the brand name was something I felt uncomfortable using in a communication to one of my end users (who come from over 100 different countries). In a multi-cultural and diverse community, it can be difficult to find the right level of humour.
