WHY FOO?

Why foo?
Somebody asked in Neal Ford presentation at thought works why we name everything Foo? Class Foo, Function Foo

He could not answer so here is my take on what other names could be adopted?

Aoo – Can’t even pronounce
Boo- Pretty romantic doesn’t look like a geeky word
Coo – Don’t know how to pronounce
Doo – Looks like a children word Doo Doo
Eoo – Can’t even pronounce

Goo – sorry doesn’t work for Indians
Hoo – Spreads negativity looks like hooting
Ioo – Can’t even pronounce
Joo – May be let’s keep it for now
Koo – Doesn’t sound good Koo – coo
Loo – Don’t want to go there during a presentation
Moo – Looks like straight from nursery rhyme
Noo – May be let’s keep it
Ooo – What is this? Doesn’t work
Poo – Hmm..who wants to utter it while coding?
Qoo – Can’t even pronounce
Roo – May be let’s keep it for now
Soo – Doesn’t work for Indians at least and that’s all I am bothered
Too – looks like counting
Uoo – Can’t even pronounce
Voo – Seems romantic again…need a geeky word
Woo – Same as above
Xoo – Can’t even pronounce
Zoo – Sorry will go there later let me code for now

So we are left with

Foo – Joo – Noo

Out of this Foo comes first and it definitely sounds better than other 2..So Foo wins Yayyy…
