It seems a really strange name

Do you think this is subject to change?

Nope, this is old discussion. I don't know why they chose it though over other names.

Yes. Jaunty Jackalope is the name.

Your username seems a good choice for a future release though...

Plucky Penguin...

Well, given the pattern of LTS releases being named for birds, Penguin is a possibility. However, LTS releases usually have adjectives that denote stability, or refinement. Plucky would not fit that category.
