It describes the generic family of synthetic polymers known generically as polyamides and first produced on February 28, 1935 by Wallace Carothers at DuPont. It was one of the first man-made fibres. How nylon got its name is unclear, but one version from Dupont suggests they wanted to name it \"No-Run,\" as it didn\'t unravel easily, but modified it to avoid making such an unjustified claim and to make the word sound better. Others say the name comes from the amalgamation of New York (NY) and London (LON) , the places where it was first developed and launched.
