"Anonymous function" might in fact seem to be a more meaningful name for 
the Mathematic construct, especially since what Mathematica refers to as 
a "pure function" seems to be significantly different from what 
Wikipedia refers to as a "pure function" in mathematics.

Or am I misunderstanding the Wikipedia description?  (I have no prior 
experience with either of these concepts.)
