  • The name Pixar is created from the combination of laser and pixel in the style of a Spanish verb. The first suggestion from Alvy Ray Smith came as Pixer. Loren Carpenter then suggested Pixar as a variation of radar. The group, which also included Rodney Stock and Jim Blinn, agreed to call their new image machine the Pixar Image Computer.[1][2][3]
