Zamenhof, a Polish-Jewish ophthalmologist, created Esperanto in the late 19th century and published the first book detailing it, Unua Libro, in 1887 under the pseudonym Doktoro Esperanto, Esperanto translating as "one who hopes". His original title for the language was simply the international language (lingvo internacia) , but early speakers grew fond of the name Esperanto and began to use it as a name for the language in 1889, which quickly gained prominence and has been used as an official name ever since."
