    Maybe just a coincidence, but the name change from Sierra > High Sierra
    strongly reminds on the Leopard > Snow Leopard followed big change......

    Any ideas?

    It's more likely a reflection of the "Tick-tock" strategy Apple has seemed to follow for the last decade or so, starting with Leopard/Snow Leopard (although Mavericks breaks the mold).

    Snow Leopard was all about refining Leopard
    Mountain Lion took what was done with Lion and refined it
    El Capitan (which is a mountain within Yosemite National Park) refined Yosemite
    High Sierra looks to be doing the same with Sierra.

    The next version (10.14) will introduce bigger changes. The beginning of the end for 32 bit applications on the Mac, for instance. It will probably leave some more machines behind (whereas High Sierra will run on all the same computers that Sierra runs on). And other bigger changes as well. Heck, they might even bump the major version number. Who knows?
