Solid is a decentralized file system and protocol designed to power decentralized social applications and linked data. It primarily leverages existing technologies - like many existing HTTP verbs - to handle a variety of identity, federation, and storage problems with the current web.

Solid was named by Sandro Hawke during a W3C Social Web Working Group meeting as captured in the meeting minutes.
