The README referred to the old name and had some wrong information; now it's fixed.

-Barkudia is a monospace programming typeface, designed as a mono companion  to
-[Cyclura](http://www.datarama.dk/code/cyclura/master.html). It shares stem
-widths and vertical proportions with Cyclura, but --- as is only appropriate
-for a monospace typeface --- leans more towards a mechanistic expression, with
-low modulation and little calligraphic stress. Yet, its letterforms are heavily
-influenced by those of humanist sans-serif types, so it's perhaps a bit
-difficult to classify. At least for an amateur typographer like me.
+Agama is a monospace programming typeface, designed as a mono companion  to
+[Cyclura](http://www.datarama.dk/code/cyclura/master.html) --- and as my
+personal terminal and programming font. It's a sans-serif face, and is probably
+best described as humanist with a few geometric influences. It has very low 
+modulation (as is appropriate for a monospace font), but it does have *slight* 
+hints of calligraphy here and there. It also has *very* slight flaring on the
+stems, invisible except at very large sizes or resolutions.
 
 As a programming typeface, its primary focus is, for lack of a better term,
 ergonomics. I stare at terminals and text editors with programming fonts in
 them for many, many hours at a time. Typographically induced eyestrain is
-*unacceptable* in my line of work (and my line of play, as it were). There are 
-other good programmers' fonts out there --- I've used Inconsolata, Ubuntu Mono
-and Droid Sans Mono quite a lot --- but I don't think either of them set very
-well as a companion mono to Cyclura. Compared to Cyclura, Barkudia is slightly
-condensed --- as a monospace, it *has* to be; if every letterform was as wide
-as an `M` or a `W` it'd result in absurd widths required for even small
-snippets of code. Its more mechanized expression also serves to provide 
-contrast --- when referring to an `identifier` from some code in the middle of
-a piece of English text, I *want* it to be obvious that that's what I'm doing.

-It's named after a genus of small, legless [lizards](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Barkudia_insularis) from India.
+Its primary inspirations and influences are the classic [Letter
+Gothic](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Letter_Gothic) face from IBM Selectric
+typewriters, and Raph Levien's fantastic
+[Inconsolata](http://www.levien.com/type/myfonts/inconsolata.html). It also has
+a few touches reminiscent of more condensed and mechanistic faces, like
+[Monoid](https://larsenwork.com/monoid/).
