Some of the best are:

To avoid casting aspersions on our feline friends, the "cat" command is now merely "domestic_quadruped."

The "nice" command was historically used by privileged users to give themselves priority over unprivileged ones, by telling them to be "nice." In System VI, the "sue" command is used by unprivileged users to get for themselves the rights enjoyed by privileged ones.

The "abort()" function is now called "choice()."
