A paradox is a statement that apparently contradicts itself and yet might be true.

Alpha is the first letter of the Greek alphabet. It was derived from the Phoenician letter "aleph," and it is the source of the Latin and Cyrillic letter "A." In English, alpha is a noun that means "beginning" or "first (in a series)."

Therefore, its name could be taken to mean "the first paradox".
