"null" is misleading because it can be misinterpreted as "zero". As a
matter of fact, that's exactly what `NULL` is in C, where everyone and
their uncle borrowed the name from; it just happens to be used a lot in
pointers, because in C pointers and integer values are highly
"nil" is stupid because it is a technical acronym that's not applicable
in many contexts: "Not In List".
"void" also comes to mind.
"mu" from Zen philosophy might also do nicely, if it wasn't prone to be
mistaken for a greek letter of same name.
