SHA-512/256” is quite a tricky name for a hash function. It’s easy to confuse with SHA-512. That, and the slash in there, makes it the opposite of search-friendly.

That’s one thing that SHA-384 has going for it – it’s easy to google and easy to tell apart from other hash functions.

I guess security might also be kind of important but I reckon unambiguity should count for something at least 🙂
