it's just like hurricanes dude, names are picked nothing more.....whatever capabilities one has over the other is the only thing determines one being different from another.

Newcastle = 130nm
Winchester = 90nm
Venice = 90nm but with added SSE3 instructions
San Diego = 90nm, SSE3 instructions, but 1mb of L2 cache
Clawhammer = 130nm FX-55 socket 939 1mb L2 Cache

Ok in a very brief nutshell, Clawhammer and Newcastle are the oldest of AMD 64 cores. Then came Winchester, which is a much better overclocker due to lower required VCORE voltage. The newest CPU's are Venice and San Diego, the difference being that San Diego has a 1 MB L2 cache compared to Venice's 512 Kb L2 cache. The Venice and San Diego cores are the best overclockers of the bunch.
