Quantum programming language name suggestion?

Posted 08 September 2012 - 02:23 AM

I plan to create some kind of quantum programming language, but I'm having difficulties in choosing a good name. I'm thinking mostly about some abbreviated names. Some of the quantum programming languages that already exist are: QCL (Quantum Computation Language), Q Language, qGCL (Quantum Guarded Command Language, LanQ, QPL (Quantum Programming Language).

All name suggestions are highly welcomed.

If you think you're going to develop this programming language all by yourself these names might also work:

  • qUnrealistic
  • qUnfinished
  • qOutOfDate

I like this. My last name is Beckett!

Yeah, I'm sorry erkant, but you can't be serious about creating a language for quantum computing. Do you have a PhD in theoretical physics by chance? Even though the programming interface may be cleanly separated from the inner-workings of the quantum machine, I would imagine you'd need quite the mastery of Quantum Mechanics and Computation to be successful.

I really liked this one. :)
Thanks for sharing.

And by the way, I don't plan to develop the language alone, I will have help during the programming process. I'm also doing it mostly for trying a new programming experience, and for fun. Also thanks to all of you for your opinions, and more are welcomed. But as I said I'm mostly looking for a name that can be abbreviated to a few letters. If I was choosing a person's name, I would definitely had chosen the name Dirac (from Paul Dirac).
