Imagine | naming a language after a speech impediment! It may not be as good as naming it after an island or a coffee brand, but seriously, if you would react negatively to (Common) Lisp because of its name, or if you have heard about others who have rejected it before looking at it because of its name, or have ignored it because it did not look like a programming language, I would be very interested to hear about actual cases. -- Erik Naggum, Oslo, Norway Act from reason, and failure makes you rethink and study harder.
