  • konna

    A fast functional language based on two level type theory

    The second was called Konna. AFAIK it’s Finnish for “frog”, but sources seem to disagree? I don’t speak Finnish, I got the word from a Finnish video game. My third and current language is called Peridot. I’m pretty proud of this name, although it’s less searchable than the previous ones. The origin is pretty simple, I was just looking around at gemstones and thought peridot looked neat.

  • spaghetti

    A programming language that uses goto extensively (by Technohacker)

    Too late: https://github.com/Technohacker/spaghetti :)

  • ramen

    A stream processing language and compiler for small-scale monitoring (by rixed)

  • wheel-lang

    A small toy imperative language (with some OOP features) for demonstrating and practicing language design/implementation.

    A friend made a snarky comment that I was reinventing the wheel; hence, wheel-lang.

  • wren

    Language with a bytecode compiler that can run on computers with only a few kB of RAM. (by darius)

    It happens I used the name before the Wren you're talking about. I don't really have a conclusion here, but it's kind of amusing.
