Simpler and more easily remembered, 2-3 syllables vs. more than twice
as many.

There are also practical issues. With "predictable" names, you can
easily end up with a name like en16777217 or enp0s1u1u2 (seen both more
than once). This is 10 characters and with automatic suffixes for e.g.
VLAN interface, you do not fit into the maximum interface name length.
