A very long time ago there was a programming language named 'b'. And the inventor of the next language named his creation 'c'. If I am not wrong there is or was even a language with name 'd'. Quote from wikipedia: "A successor to the programming language B, C was originally developed at Bell Labs by Dennis Ritchie between 1972 and 1973 to construct utilities running on Unix."

U can use Google for that type of questions

nikita mane I think the rest of the letters were forgotten by its creator 👀

The creators want that everyone "see" his language. So he named it "C".

To my recollection Dennis Ritchie was working on the Multics operating system and also BCPL primarily to write compilers, then wrote B. Multics and B where then scrapped for Unix and C, C primarily then used to write Unix itself as well as all the utilities that came along with it

C is about the tone C. There had already been B. (Like the others said) When C++ was released, it was because the creator wanted to say it is C, but oncreased, because of the C++, although these both languages are quite different. C# is because in music, the # at the end means, that the tone is raised by one step. Same princip as with the ++. Nowadays, there 7s also F.

There was a language before c named b and c was developed at AT&T's bell Laboratories in USA in 1972.it was written by Denish Ritchie

Because a and b and c , so it's name is C.

C came out of Ken Thompson's Unix project at AT&T. He originally wrote Unix in assembly language. He wrote a language in assembly called B that ran on Unix, and was a subset of an existing language called BCPL. Dennis Ritchie joined Thompson's project, extended the B language into what they called C, and subsequently Unix was largely rewritten in C.

Before C there was a language called B. And after C came the increment of C that is C++.
