AnandTech: Intel's Silvermont Architecture Revealed said:
Intel made this announcement last year, but Silvermont is the beginning of Intel’s tick-tock cadence for Atom. Intel plans on revving Atom yearly for at least the next three years. Silvermont introduces a new architecture, while Airmont will take that architecture and bring it down to 14nm in 2014/2015. One year later, we’ll see another brand new architecture take the stage also on 14nm. This is a shift that Intel needed to implement years ago, but it’s still not too late.
So its 2013 Silvermont (22nm, new architecture) ->2014 Airmont (14nm, die shrink) -> 2015 Goldmont (14nm, new architecture).

goldmont? didnt AT mention Airmont as the successor to Silvermont
knowing skylake is 2015, could goldmont come after airmont

although gold after silver sounds logical :D

Something about it just doesn't roll off the tongue like most other Intel codenames do.

It adds new instructions which are shared with Skylake- coming out at roughly the same time as it would make sense to me.

2013 - Silvermont (new uArch )
2014 - Airmont (shrink, hopefully some enhancements?)
2015 - Goldmont (new uArch)

Platinum, then Titanium, followed by Signature and ultimately "Black" if they are following the Marketing 101 handbook created by the credit-card industry :p

But...if Intel really wanted to be savvy and stick with Group 11 elements from the periodic table then they'd follow Goldmont with element 111 (Roentgenium, pronounced runt-GEN-ee-əm) and roll out codename Roentgeniumont. (rolls off the tongue like silk, don't it ;) :D)

roentgen, now there is a word that's fallen out of use.

Roentgen discovered and named x-rays. But the science/medical communities called them roentgen rays in his honor.

What we call Radiology today was previously roentgenology.
