Other than a legal check for conflicts with trademarks etc,  that is
correct.  Any name can get through if someone proposes and enough people
vote for it.  Anyone with a Fedora account can vote and getting a
account takes only a few minutes.   You can't always get the name of
your choice but if you like a particular name or don't, you have the
ability to influence the result.  Use it.

Well, the Board does screen the names and only passes on to legal the
short list it chooses from those nominated by the community. This
makes good sense to not overburden legal and to discard things that
don't meet the requirements ... except in those cases where the Board
chooses to overlook the requirements. There is a filter before the
names get to legal though.
