Person who believes technology should be our servant- wants phone to scream out aloud if he is about to miss something important. Also wants phone not to disturb if the message coming in is less important than what he is working on.

From web posting by Larry Page regarding the name

For Sergey and me this is a very exciting new chapter in the life of Google-the birth of Alphabet. We liked the name Alphabet because it means a collection of letters that represent language, one of humanity’s most important innovations, and is the core of how we index with Google search! We also like that it means alpha-bet (Alpha is investment return above benchmark), which we strive for! I should add that we are not intending for this to be a big consumer brand with related products-the whole point is that Alphabet companies should have independence and develop their own brands.
