i5 was hardware (as in: IBM System i5) though, i5/OS was software. (Might be what you're thinking of.)

Using "Power" as a name is probably a bad idea, since (depending on interpretation) might be unspecific, or might mean that it runs on all of AIX, Linux and IBM i.

Since software is generally designed for a particular operating system (not a particular piece of hardware) it's more appropriate to say "IBM i".
