liter is the derived unit for VOLUME
Use the symbol
L

Is that a capital
L for the unit of measure named
after a person like C for Celsius?  No....

long before the typewriter we would have to
write the script .
But as technology came along it became apparent
that typewriters were not equipped with
so attempts were made to use
the lower case "l" (el).
Then it became further confusing to write "1l" (lower case "el")
as the "1" and "l" (el) looked too similar as did the capital "I" (eye).
So the capital L was chosen as the symbol for
the derived base unit liter.
That is the only exception in this.
