Someone whose job is to assign names to things. Commonly confused with a robot from the future, but that interpretation is wrong because:
term: a name for something
-ator: one who does
terminator- one who assigns names to things
person 1- what's your job
person 2 - I'm a terminator
person 1 - so you're a robot from the future that kills people?
person 2 - no, I assign names to things
person 1 - that's not what that means
person 2 - uh, I would know. Who's the terminator here?
