Why brian2 rather than brain2?

i can only find brian as “a first name for boys” from oxford dictionary.
Sorry i don’t find the answer in documentations/papers.

Hi Xia.
I’m not a developer for Brian, but I suspect it’s a humorous reference to
Monty Python’s “Life of Brian”

(there’s a striking similarity between the Brian logo and this poster)

Python, the programming language is, itself, named after Monty Python.

I also think there must have been some light-hearted but mischievous intent knowing how many users would accidentally type ‘Brain’ when they meant ‘Brian’ and vice versa :grin:


Hi, adam, sounds interesting. :smile:
