I came across a fantastic fact when I was reading about the history of thermodynamics. The symbol "S" in equations of entropy (that is assigned to the concept of entropy) in named after Sadi Carnot the french engineer who contributed a lot to thermodynamics. His father Lazare Carnot was fascinated by the Persian poetry and specially Saadi Shirazi one of the greatest Persian poets. He named his son after him. From Sadi of Shiraz to Sadi Carnot, to Entropy.

I have to add that, I'm a huge fan of Saadi's poetry. That's why I got goose pumps learning this
