Please take care of Lucene :)

My company's Order Search, which is based on Lucene, is like a miracle to me. I was wondering what does Lucene stand for? After the dose of Sentinel, Lucene was little off the hook :)

Where does the name Lucene come from?

Lucene is Doug Cutting's wife's middle name, and her maternal grandmother's first name.


Doug Cutting is the developer of Lucene. Just wondering how different even great minds think to come up with a name or is it that Java people are more Loving ;)
