    In a 2020 post, Lemmy’s co-creator Dessalines wrote about the origin of the name Lemmy. "It was nameless for a long time, but I wanted to keep with the fediverse tradition of naming projects after animals. I was playing that old-school game Lemmings, and Lemmy (from Motorhead) had passed away that week, and we held a few polls for names, and I went with that.

    From Wikipedia.

    The concept of the fediverse was thought up by a mouse.

      Our Founder, who art in grayscale, hallowed be thy whiskers; thy comments come; thy shitposting be done; on Lemmy better than it was on Removed. Give us this day our daily memes. And forgive us our trolling, as we block those who troll against us. And lead us not into defederation; but deliver us from ads. For thine is the platform, the source code and the upvotes, for ever and ever. Amouse.

        When Lemmy defederate from the rest of the world and becomes its own country this shall be our country’s motto!
