NAME OF THE DAY
This name derives from the Ancient Greek name “Eukleídēs (Εὐκλείδης)”, composed of two elements: “eû (εὖ)” (well) plus “kléos (κλέος)” (rumor, report, good report, fame, glory). In turn, the name means “one who has a good reputation, glorious, renowned, well known”. Euclid, also known as Euclid of Alexandria, was a Greek mathematician, often referred to as the "Father of Geometry". He was active in Alexandria during the reign of Ptolemy I. His Elements is one of the most influential works in the history of mathematics, serving as the main textbook for teaching mathematics (especially geometry) from the time of its publication until the late 19th or early 20th century.
