Well, latin ( or italian ) is used in classical music like : Allegretto, Allegro, Tempo, Molto, Avanti etc. From there to spanish or greek is not far away.
Funny is when i met Stig Björge from Lyra in the early 90th he used ( and uses ) greek names for his cartridges.

I use names like that even today for my Canalis speakers :
Anima ( soul )
Cambria ( from wood )
Allegra ( spanish girl name )
Amerigo ( Amerigo Vespuci, where the name "Amerika" comes from. I think he was a portugese.

Lyra is full on Greek mythological names indeed. But you had Rhea subwoofer after the daughter of titan Uranus too. Was the naming thing always yours or there was some marketing people input involved sometimes too?

No, i came up with the names like Kronos ( time, father of Zeus ).
I read a lot and i have other interests besides Audio like Philosophy, wines and cooking.
It all boils down to culture and old Greece was kind of a high time.

Amerigo Vespucci was an Italian cartographer that worked for D. Manuel I the Portuguese King that invested in the Americas.

Thanks Ricardo, actually Allen Perkins came up with that name.
The first new construction of mine for the american market. Was not that successful though so we are making at the moment the Amerigo 2.0 that is slimmer in look.

There is a German watch magazine called " Chronos".
I was fascinated by mechanical watches for a long time. Not any more so much.
I am looking into old German culture at the moment. The Celtic people came original from south Germany ( Baden-Würthemberg).

Central place as Germany is it should have seen a lot of old tribes, birth, mix, and traffic. Fantastic work has been done by population geneticist Spencer Wells in a broader sense. Determined the journey and diversity of man by blood mutation markers inherited uniquely through generations. National Geographic Live! - Spencer Wells: The Human Journey - YouTube
