For example, if something is called "Gutsy Gibbon" you might expect it to be
full of experimental and risky stuff.

This is actually the intention. Gutsy was the first release after a LTS
version, and they wanted to integrate quite some new stuff. (sure, they
didn't want to imply it was completely experimental or risky) All Ubuntu
code names have a rationale, I think.

FWIW, some people love code names, and if they're well-chosen, they can help
with the promotion of the distribution.

(and sure, some people just don't care about the code names -- but
having a code name won't "hurt" those people)
