Who decided to call it clementine instead of orangine?

@uint8_t dunno if you're talking about the music player or what but one of the demo programs that came with the Ferranti Mercury (a 1950s computer) was one that plays "Oh My Darling, Clemetine" and so one of the 19 Mercurys ever built was nicknamed "Clementina"
