Hi Elly,

Which names are you wondering about? The names on our problems are created by the people who write them. We need someway to refer to problems in a way that is not not simply "algebra problem #893." We strive to make them a little bit snarky and unique so that they can be remembered more easily. Coming up with good names for math problems is actually pretty hard though.
