Yes, companies do that sort of thing with branding because of marketing.

Still question remains, are you trying to be descriptive ("this is
what you're running") or attribute credit ("these are the guys who
made what you're running")?
In either case, it could be argued "fedora" is not the optimal choice.

Sure, only I'm pretty sure this is not what RedHat had in mind.
