# What does 'lm' mean in the lmplot() in seaborn?

I was learning seaborn, but could not find the full name of seaborn.lmplot. What is 'l' and 'm' in the name 'lmplot'.

"lm" = "linear model". As reported in the docs:

Plot data and regression model fits across a FacetGrid. [...] It is intended as a convenient interface to fit regression models across conditional subsets of a dataset.
