FULL DISCUSSION
 

Did the name of the language come from "gee, what's a gemstone that starts with the letter C?"

 

It was more "gee, what's a gemstone that would make for a good file extension?" cr sounded kind of nice and... we don't like to bike shed on this sorts of things too much :P, so it ended up being Crystal.

 

Haha nice! Totally a fan of good file extensions.
