Was the previous name too googleable?
I also don’t understand this switch. Nimrod seems like a much more sensible name, much easier to remember.
“Nimrod” typically means “idiot”, at least in the US, so the negative connotations attached to the name could hold back the language’s adoption.
Only very colloquially. It was an idiom for “great hunter” and Bugs Bunny sarcastically using it to refer to Elmer Fudd turned it into idiot.
Yes, but at least it means something. Nim is just random…
Actually, Nim is a game.
