# Berry naming scheme list of LaTeX font families

Could you provide me with a list of Berry names for LaTeX font families?

I am currently working on a paper comparing various LaTeX fonts, particularly their support of extended Latin and it took some time to figure out these obsolete three-letter codes for the TeX Gyre families (to change font families using `\fontfamily{nnn}\selectfont`). Rather than gathering all the `.map` files, I tried to look them up on the Internet, but with no success.

The documentation of the PSNFSS bundle features the following packages: `times`, `palatino`, `helvet`, `avant`, `newcent`, `bookman`, `courier`, `pifont`, `chancery`, `mathptm`, `mathpple`, `charter`, `utopia`, `mathpazo`. It is possible to extract the codes, but it is unnecessarily time-consuming and some are still missing (such as TeX Gyre).

Should someone look for the same, here are the Berry names of TeX Gyre families:

• Adventor – `qag`
• Bonum – `qbk`
• Chorus – `qzc`
• Cursor – `qcr`
• Heros – `qhv`
• Pagella – `qpl`
• Schola – `qcs`
• Termes – `qtm`

you can look into the package, e.g. `tgpagella.sty` for the font name. Or use `XeTeX` or `LuaTeX` then you can use the official font name. –  Herbert Jul 20 '11 at 13:26
Some are listed at tex.stackexchange.com/a/25251/4012 –  doncherry Mar 11 '12 at 12:26
The file tug.org/fontname/fontname.pdf contains a large listing. –  Steven B. Segletes Aug 30 '13 at 16:07

The names can be found in `fontname.pdf` (`texdoc fontname` on TeX Live systems); on page 4 there is the list of "suppliers" and GUST Typefoundry appears as `q`. Since TeX Gyre Termes, for instance, is a clone of Times, its family name is `qtm`.

• `ag` Avant Garde
• `bk` Bookman
• `zc` Zapf Chancery
• `cr` Courier
• `hv` Helvetica
• `pl` Palatino
• `cs` Century Schoolbook (the Adobe one is NewCentury Schoolbook, `pnc`)
• `tm` Times

There are listings by supplier in the appendix, but GUST Typefoundry doesn't (still) appear.

the list is incomplete, it doesn't show all that fonts which start with x, e.g. libertine –  Herbert Jul 20 '11 at 13:46
@Herbert On my copy `xl` appears at the end of page 16; the font supplier is `f` (small foundry), so `fxl` is the family name; on the other hand Biolinum is not listed. –  egreg Jul 20 '11 at 13:57
@egreg Thank you. –  Harold Cavendish Jul 20 '11 at 18:17
