Some clown decided to name it a daemon (demon)

So I always wondered how to pronoun daemon (a background process in linux). Low and behold I googled the term to realize that some guy who clearly didn't have enough entertainment in his life thought it was nice to name this after the word demon. Like seriously - what a way to force people to use that term.

This is the except I read from Wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Daemon_(computing)
