I believe they were project design numbers that, once they were accepted, became the aircrafts' official designation.

not sure exactly where they got their numbers from, but i can tell you this. the MD-11 is a lockheed design. after they decided to get out of the commercial market, mcdonell douglas bought the design from them.
