    101 comes up a bit too. Neo = The One, Cypher = Zero. Neo lives in Apartment 101 (Room 101) and obv. binary is 1s and 0s.

    Always assumed the 101 was a 1984 reference.

    Yeah, Room 101 but there's the other stuff I mentioned too.

    For sure. The binary is a good shout. Never thought of it.

    It would make more sense for Smith to be called Cypher given how the story pans out, but maybe they hadn't thought that far ahead.

    Ah

    The word "cipher" (minority spelling "cypher") in former times meant "zero" and had the same origin: Middle French as cifre and Medieval Latin as cifra, from the Arabic صفر sifr = zero (see Zero—Etymology). "Cipher" was later used for any decimal digit, even any number. There are many theories about how the word "cipher" may have come to mean "encoding".
