I was just wondering if there is a process or set of properties that exist to name a score, such as, Cohen’s Kappa, Fleiss’ Kappa, Krippendorff’s Alpha, or if it is just at the creators choice.
Thanks in advance

I think the original poster meant to ask, why do people name things with Greek letters instead of our usual Roman letters? Not clear is what people or what kinds of things. Let me guess, from ignorance, that the poster is interested in psychology or one of its offshoots, and that psychologists and psychometricians have a penchant to name things after Greek letters. Maybe because the name of their subject begins with a Greek letter?
If the question receives a more serious rephrasing I will modify this answer accordingly.
