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?
