    In December 1989, Python’s creator Guido Van Rossum was looking for a hobby project to keep him occupied in the week around chrismas. He had been thinking of writing a new scripting language that’d be a descendant of ABC and also appeal to Unix/C hackers. He chose to call it Python.

    Why it was called Python
