Origin of “clone”

An interesting bit of trivia…

Webber chose “clon.” From a Greek term meaning twig, spray, or slip, broken off for the purposes of propagation, “clon,” met Webber’s criteria of being short, euphonious, phonetically spelled, easily pronounced, and unlike any other word being used in the English language.
