“What’s in a name?

“What’s in a name? that which we call a rose By any other name would smell as sweet.”

Why this question now? Of late my friends have been asking me to explain the funda regarding my strange ID – LogRCubed. It is being used in my blog name, domain ids, my GitHub Id, my tags etc. So what exactly is this? But before all that what is a literature post doing here. I am sheepishly trying to justify the keywords in my blog name – LogRCubed, a whole brain, Cipher and my domain name – 3logR.com!

I stumbled upon this idea during my school days while learning logarithms. People have been calling me Threelok, ThreeLog, Trilock, Trylock etc. All kinds of variations. One of these misspelled representation or mispronunciation gave me this idea to think of my name as a mathematical expression, logarithmic expression to be precise, the derivation of which is given below.

LogRCubed = Log [R]3
= 3 Log R
= 3 Lok R
= Three-Lok R
= Trilok R

Hence the Name and the Strange ID! Phew… There starts my love for name mangling, ciphers and being whole brain. Someone who loves both art and code to the same extent.

So again, what is in a name? Many a things, most importantly “being you”…!
