There are two things that go into naming the latest flavor of Android. First, it has to proceed alphabetically from the last version. Second, it has to be a candy or dessert. For example, "K" was for 2013's KitKat, "L" was for 2014's Lollipop, and "M" is for Marshmallow, the Android version released in October 2015. Android N is officially called Nougat.
