What are an other candidates words that existed when the word "Agile" declared ?

In particular, Please let me know what was first candidate word.


I'm currently learning Scrum. This topic came up while learning about "Agile vs Scrum".

My coach says that knowing the first candidate word helps me understand Agile.

Please let me know.

The other candidate words were lightweight and adaptive, but the concept at the time did not resolve to one word, instead we generally spoke of such things as rapid evolutionary prototyping for example.
