When I first saw this method name, I read it as splitIterator. Then I typed that and it didn't compile. spilterator is certainly easier to say, but it will take a while to remember.

Any other "interesting" method names that anyone has seen in Java 8?

Actually, the spliterator is not something one would normally see as a user of the streams library. An implementor of a new stream class that fits into the streams hierarchy has to provide one. I never bothered to find out how to do that because I see myself writing a new stream even less often than a new Collection (which I have done maybe twice in 20 years).

The first thing that came into my mind when I read that word was "Transformers"
