There is precedence for skipping a version number as Oracle went from Oracle7 (or 8, I last worked on 7) to Oracle 10. I think Sybase did something similar.

How about following the Microsoft example and cal it PHP 2015?

Or maybe Apple example and call it PHP Aardvark? Course there is a numeric version under Yosemite.

Well the name was already decided after the recording of this podcast to be PHP 7.

Anyway, personally it does not matter much. As for naming after years, I think it would do too. Maybe they kept 7 so, people with older versions have a clue about how far behind they are.
