    $\begingroup$ Since we are on the subject of it being a name - names are capitalized. It is not blender that we use to make 3d, it is Blender. I am really surprised to see so many people making mistakes like that. It looks very unprofessional and always makes me think that if a person makes mistakes like this I should probably expect them to make other mistakes in general as well so I tend not to trust and question what they say and do. I fail to see why anyone would want to be perceived like that. $\endgroup$ – Martynas Žiemys Jan 25 '19 at 0:39

    $\begingroup$ While not opinion based (there actually is a written history about it) I still don't think it is a suitable question for this site since it is not about using the software $\endgroup$ – Duarte Farrajota Ramos Jan 25 '19 at 0:57

    $\begingroup$ I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because this is not about using Blender. $\endgroup$ – Ray Mairlot Jan 25 '19 at 16:35

Blender got its name from a song used in NeoGeo's showreel, the company that started developing Blender.

The song's name is Blender by Yello, a Swiss electronic music band, as stated at the Wikipedia Page.
