It seems that the name Euler's constant, used to denote the Euler–Mascheroni constant $\gamma$, is often interpreted as Euler's number $e$. To avoid ambiguity, I propose that the tag be renamed to .

    $\begingroup$ Seems like half of the questions talk about $e$ and half talk about $\gamma$. I think we can just merge it into one of the other tags, e.g. constants. $\endgroup$ – Asaf Karagila Nov 8 '13 at 21:19

    $\begingroup$ BTW the tag (e) is synonym of (exponential-function). $\endgroup$ – Martin Sleziak Nov 9 '13 at 9:45

    $\begingroup$ @Martin: I think we should place a ban on one-letter tag names in general. $\endgroup$ – Asaf Karagila Nov 9 '13 at 10:20
  • $\begingroup$ Perhaps (eulers-number) could be a reasonably synonym of (e). (Or replacement, should one-letter tag be removed.) $\endgroup$ – Martin Sleziak Nov 9 '13 at 20:11
  • $\begingroup$ @AsafKaragila Hm, is pi a one-letter tag name? $\endgroup$ – Hagen von Eitzen Nov 10 '13 at 11:16

    $\begingroup$ @Hagen: No, it has two letters. π would have been one letter. $\endgroup$ – Asaf Karagila Nov 10 '13 at 11:23

    $\begingroup$ pi may not be a one-letter tag name but it certainly is one letter tag name. $\endgroup$ – Omar Antolín-Camarena Nov 12 '13 at 19:52
