The adjective endian has its origin in the writings of 18th century Anglo-Irish writer Jonathan Swift. In the 1726 novel Gulliver's Travels, he portrays the conflict between sects of Lilliputians divided into those breaking the shell of a boiled egg from the big end or from the little end. He called them the Big-Endians and the Little-Endians. Cohen makes the connection to Gulliver's Travels explicit in the appendix to his 1980 note.

Previously the name byte sex was sometimes used for the same concept.

what about dogs, they age at different rates

there was a pretty long article in wired not too long ago about billionaires harnessing the power of the wily chihuahua because they demonstrably age slower than larger dogs

the color orange is named after the fruit, not the other way around. english had no word for this color until the fruit started being imported to britain from the middle east in the medieval ages

you can divide most european languages between those who got the word from spain and call it orange (from spanish "naranja"), those who got it from portugal and call it "bortugal" or "portakal") and those who called it "chinese apple" in their own language.
