How does the name "Jekyll" relate to the novel?

Jekyll is coming into its tenth year, but after some fairly detailed research, I cannot come upon why it’s named “Jekyll”. The potion logo is a clear allusion to the “Strange case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde” and there are all of a 4 references (without context) to “Mr. Hyde” in the configuration documentation. However, apart from those details, I don’t see the parallel and am looking to understand. Does anyone know where the name “Jekyll” comes from?

Thank you in advance for your enlightenment!

I have the same interrogation and can’t find anything on the web ^^’

The name is an allusion to the transformation of source files written in Markdown to a navigable static site that can be hosted on any server.
