I found this tweet by the person who chose those names in the first place to be interesting.
@billygriffin22 @codervandal @natfriedman @Una @github I picked the names "master" (and "origin") in the early Git tooling back in 2005.(this probably means you shouldn't give much weight to my name preferences :) )I have wished many times I would have named them "main" (and "upstream") instead.Glad it's happenning @natfriedman
