Dunno who taught you your English, but it's my only language, and to me
evergreen means perennially green and _live_, like such coniferous trees as
pine, sequoia, cypress & fir. Evergreen seems like an apt name for a LTS
distro to me.

You're right, but I think you missed the pun - ever=always,
green=immature/inexperienced. :-)
