Believe it or not, a foot is called a foot because it is about the same size of the foot of an average grown adult man.
However, whenever I need to figure out the length of something smaller I do not call on my pet inchworm. Why? Because not all inchworms . . . not even the average sized ones . . . are an inch long. Inchworms are called inchworms because they inch along.
The word 'inch' comes from Latin uncia meaning "one twelfth part" . . . an inch is 1/12 of a foot which is 12 inches . . . duh.
Just a bit of trivia based one my perfectly proportionally footed husband's suggestion.
