From the perspective of brand strategy consultant, Delphi/.... Pascal/Lazarus + similarities should name themselves as "Pascalite", pursuants of core programming philosophy.

Bob Swart named his daughter Delphine, does that count ?

Why is the keyword FreePascal not present in the Tiobe index (in the definitions):
https://www.tiobe.com/tiobe-index/programming-languages-definition/

Surely it's Free Pascal and not FreePascal? Yep, from the freepascal.org website: "Free Pascal is a mature...".

Wow. Just like a celebrity.
Because the Tiobe people have no clue.
...or they don't care. Their business is selling own products, not promoting FreePascal.

Hope she will marry someone with family name of Pascal.

If you care, Delphi/Object Pascal moved up on Tiobe from 22 to 12 this past year in April  :).

Which means they probably adjusted their search algorithm yet again... ::)

Object Pascal has been rising for a few months in Tiobe. The amplitude of the oscillations shows that the methodology is completely flawed. Seeing Logo in the top twenty a few months ago was hilarious. However, given the widespread overestimation of Tiobe, I am pleased to see Object Pascal in a good position again. It improves the reputation of the language and, perhaps, raises some doubts to those who consider it dead for decades.
