The term "fractal" was first used and coined by mathematician Benoit Mandelbrot in 1975 [wiki], "[..] because it conveys this feeling of fragmented, broken, fractional, irregular".
Because of his access to IBM's computers, Mandelbrot was one of the first to use computer graphics to create and display fractal geometric images, leading to his discovering the Mandelbrot set in 1979.

"Fractals are shapes we are extraordinarily used to in our subsconscious" [mr. Mandelbrot]. The clustering of galaxies.
