    Okay so I know what a daisy chain is. My question is if anyone knows how that name got started. I feel like something as cool as linking hard drives together should have a better name than "daisy chaining."

    It comes from stringing daisies together to make a chain or simply a daisy chain. From there, it has been used to describe various different things that look similar but have no daisies, of course. Like for hard drives. Or sexual partners, but you knew that, right?
