Does the Large in Large Hadron Collider describe the collider or the hadrons? I looked into it a bit and am posting this to share my answer with the community. I'm also required to write so much in the question box because the autochecks don't allow me to submit a short question.
I looked up the French name and it is "Grand collisionneur de hadrons", so I guess the collider is large, not the hadrons. Also, it replaced the LEP (Large electron-positron), so I guess anyhting in that 27km tunnel qualifies as Large.
BTW, The term hadron was introduced by Lev B. Okun (according to wikipedia) from the Greek ἁδρός signifies "large", "massive". So the LHC is the Large Large-thing Collider. However, some playing with Google Translate does not confirm that Greek meaning.
