Wishlisted by Matt Mayer

Lua was invented in 1993 at the Pontifical Catholic University of Rio de Janeiro by Roberto Ierusalimschy, Luiz Henrique de Figueiredo, and Waldemar Celes. Trade barriers made it difficult to import software from abroad, so members of the Computer Graphics Technology Group at the university had to make tools from scratch. Lua is the Portugese word for moon, named as it borrowed syntax from an earlier language SOL (Simple Object Language), Sol being the Portugese word for sun!
