Answer:

Edgar F Codd (1) came up with a syntax for structured querying of relational databases called SEQUEL (2).  that term, however, was trademarked by Hawker Siddeley corp, so he settled for SQL instead.

So, remember kids, the ‘right’ pronunciation of SQL is SEQUEL. QED.

  1. Hawker-Siddeley used to have an aircraft called Sequel. 2 looks like some kind of SQL. So I will say person in 1 is Codd.

    So Codd’s rules, SQL, naming of SQL and maybe Hawker-Siddeley filed a suit against infringement of name or something. (making it up as i am going along :-) )

    Ted Codd invented relational databases and the SEQUEL language was built at IBM to access them. However, SEQUEL was trademarked by Hawker Siddeley, so they changed the name to SQL.

    1 is Edgar F. Codd
    2 is SQL.
    SQL was one of the first commercial languages for Edgar F. Codd’s relational model. SQL was initially called SEQUEL. But, later the name changed to SQL as “SEQUEL” was a trademark of the UK-based Hawker Siddeley aircraft company.

    Edgar F Codd came up with Relational Model. SQL was initially called SEQUEL, but shortened to SQL as SEQUEL was a trademark of Hawker Siddeley.

    SEQUEL Whoops! can’t call it that because Hawker Siddeley will complain.
    “SQL”

    SEQUEL -> SQL


  7. Edgar Codd invented the relational model. SQL was the first language used for the relational model. SQL was earlier known as SEQUEL but had to shorten it as the SEQUEL was a trademark held bby Hawker Siddeley.

    SQL was one of the first commercial languages for Edgar F. Codd’s relational model.

    SEQUEL was renamed to SQL by dropping the vowels, because SEQUEL was a trade mark registered by the Hawker Siddeley aircraft company.

    edgar codd invented sql, and the name sequel was held by hawker-siddeley, so sequel was condensed to sql

    Edgar Codd, his relational model and Hawker Siddeley.

    The story goes thusly:

    During the 1970s, a group at IBM’s San Jose research center developed a database system “System R” based upon, but not strictly faithful to, Codd’s model. Structured English Query (SQL) Language (“SEQUEL”) was designed to manipulate and retrieve data stored in System R. The acronym SEQUEL was later condensed to SQL because the word ‘SEQUEL’ was held as a trademark by the Hawker-Siddeley aircraft company of the UK.


  11. 1. E F Codd – Inventor of Relational DB
    2. Represents relational DB
    3. Hawker Siddely owned the trademark for the name SEQUEL, Hence Structured Query Language was abbreviated to SQL instead of SEQUEL

    1- Edgar Codd

    SQL was one of the first commercial languages for Edgar F. Codd’s relational model, as described in his influential 1970 paper, “A Relational Model of Data for Large Shared Data Banks”.

    The original name of SQL was SEQUEL which was later changed to SQL because “SEQUEL” was a trademark of the UK-based Hawker Siddeley aircraft company.

    1. Edgar F. Codd
    2. Sequel, later renamed SQL
    3. hawker siddeley

    Edgar F. Codd came up with “A Relational Model of Data for Large Shared Data Banks” which led to SEQUEL, but that hand to be renamed to SQL because Hawker Siddeley owned the name “SEQUEL”


  14. SQL/SEQUEL

    SQL was one of the first languages for Edgar F. Codd’s relational model in his influential paper

    SQL was developed at IBM by Andrew Richardson, Donald C. Messerly and Raymond F. Boyce in the early 1970s. This version, initially called SEQUEL, was designed to manipulate and retrieve data stored in IBM’s original relational database product, System R. IBM patented this version of SQL in 1985.

    During the 1970s, a group at IBM San Jose Research Laboratory developed the System R relational database management system. Donald D. Chamberlin and Raymond F. Boyce of IBM subsequently created the Structured English Query Language (SEQUEL or SEQL) to manage data stored in System R. The acronym SEQUEL was later changed to SQL because “SEQUEL” was a trademark of the UK-based Hawker Siddeley aircraft company.

    IBM developed a database system based on Edgar F. Codd ‘s work. Structured English Query Language (SEQUEL) was used to retrieve data from this database. Word ‘SEQUEL’ was trademarked by Hawker-Siddeley aircraft company hence “SQL” was used

    The relational algebra.
    Hawker Sideley, which owned the trademark SEQUEL, resulting in SQL being named.. SQL.

    SEQUEL was structured english query language based upon Edgar Codd’s model to access IBM’s database system, System R.
    SEQUEL was a trademark of UK’s Hawker-Siddeley aircraft company. Hence SEQUEL was condensed to SQL.

    SEQUEL – SQL

    Edgar Codd was the person who proposed Relational model for DBMS or popularly called RDBMS. SEQUEL developed by Richardson and Boyce of IBM was the first language to implement the RDBMS concept. The name SEQUEL was in clash with the trademark of Hawker Siddeley and hence its name was changed later to what we know today as SQL.


  21. Edgar Codd developed a model for Relative Database Management Systems. SEQUEL was developed based on this model. But SEQUEL was being used as a trademark by Hawker Siddeley. Hence a short form, ‘SQL’ was used.
