It's very hard for languages too: pythons are called constrictors
for a good reason, it is an ancient proverb that wisdom is better 
than rubies, and alas, perls are generally cast to swine.  Then 
I have not yet alluded to the likes of Ada, C++ and Java.

Pascal (in the days when Niklaus Wirth was the sole BDFL, before
Borland got in on the act) and Lua are the only two exceptions
I know.
