Word Nerd

Today at work I got to wondering about the etymology of nerd. It is interesting.

Disambiguation? I had to look it up. Does that mean I'm NOT a nerd?
I'm really glad the 'nurd' spelling hasn't caught on-too much like turd.

At a former job I was asked what to name our technical writing department, of which I was a member. My suggestion was "Word Nerd Herd".

Sadly, it didn't make the cut.
