It was David Bronstein who suggested the idea long before Fischer did. It’s mentioned in the book here (sample):

Then, just call it chess 960 instead of trying to get fancy and using Roman numerals (L=50 and X +10)

Yes it does not make any sense. FIDE interestingly officially used the term "Fischer Random" for the world championship last year. Since 960 is short and quicker to say I am okay with this term or Fischer Random.

Sorry, my English is not doing well. It is, it dawned on me, not downed. Also. it is fancier, not more fancier.

At first I could not figure out how Fischer Random Chess or Chess 960 became 9LX. Then, it downed on me. It is Roman numerals. L is 50 and X is 10. Thus, it is just another way to call it 960, but why? What is the point? Does it sound more fancier to call it 9LX? For me I prefer Fischer random. He is the first one to come up with the idea.
