I am reading an old code base written by a previous French colleague. He named a variable 'Germaine', which is the percentage of hotel room booked. This variable is used to set price for the rest of the rooms: obviously the less rooms left, the higher our price is for the rest.
I searched internet and found that this word means 'German' or 'Germany' in French, or a Saint
Does anyone here has any insight why he names the booking ratio Germaine? is this some kind of slang ?
