Android L likely to mean Lemon Meringue Pie – Android LMP

Ever since Android L hit the scene everyone has been wondering what the ‘L’ stood for, and today it looks like there’s evidence as to just what Android L stood for.

According to Android Police, Android L will stand for ‘Lemon Meringue Pie’ after reference to ‘LMP’ was found multiple times in source code and documentation for the next release.

An extract from the Android SDK mentions the current previews available for Android L for the Nexus 5 and Nexus 7 as ‘lmp-preview-release’.

Numerous other references are piecing together that show LMP as the next version of firmware for Android. However, Android 4.4 was referred to previously as Key Lime Pie, right up until it was changed to KitKat at the last minute.

So now the only thing left to establish is if Android L sounded better than LMP?

    Kit Kat had references to KLP even after the announcement with Nestle, so this means nothing. With all the managment changes and much of the contributing team members changing, including the new project lead, who’s to say that the new version won’t simply keep the L name with the excuse that L is Roman numeral for 50, as in 5.0. Nobody ever said Android would be nicknamed after treats forever. After all, that meme was a Rubin thing.
