For what it's worth, "BRAINFUCK" is the name of a programming
language, well-known for it's extreme minimalism.  While it
is not very useful for real-world applications, it was (is?)
somewhat popular among CS students because of the challenging
nature of implementing seemingly trivial tasks with it.

Other such languages include INTERCAL (the only language that
has a "comefrom" instruction instead of "goto") and BEFUNGE,
a language that uses a two-dimensional command structure.

I think there's nothing wrong with using names of programming
languagess for host names and/or kernel names.

Best regards
