|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.
