Most of those names come from the bit-wise operations they use, or some 
similar historic origin.

While it might be nice to try to craft English-like names for them, 
that's a daunting task - "XOR" is "XOR" in every language, and geeky as 
it is I can't think of any other way to describe it that isn't nearly a 
sentence long. :)
