How Apple Got its Name
There are many wonderful theories about where Apple got its name from. Heard any of these before ?
- It was inspired by Eve taking a bite out of the forbidden fruit.
- It came from the sad tale of Alan Turing, the father of modern computing who took his life by eating a poisoned apple.
- It’s from Greek mythology, where Nymphs could gain immortality by eating a golden apple.
- It’s because “an apple a day keeps the doctor away”.
There are plenty of other theories and ideas floating around, but the truth is, Steve Jobs liked the fruit and decided to name his company after it. Jobs even publicly expressed regret that there’s no hidden meaning or more profound connotation to the name. He just really enjoyed apples.
In fact, the popular Macintosh computer got its name from the McIntosh apple, keeping the apple theme through and through.
