Well the Ego was named Ego because it stands for: Eclipse Go aka Ego.

I thought I saw something about eMortal. That has a nice sound to it. Geo just sounds a little light in comparison to Ego.

Doesn't EGO stand for Eclipse Genuine Original? I don't recall where I heard it, honestly, so I very well could be wrong .

Anyways, I think the GEO is really just a play on the EGO's name, and hopefully its success

I believe it's either PGI or Facefull have an interview with Jack and Ledz. In it they state that EGO stand for; Eclipse Generation Original. I can go dig out my mag collection and find the exact issue if you like?

You are going to argue with an Eclipse employee?

As for Jack, he has stated the following on these forums: -

E-GO - Eclipse Go
and Ego - inflated sense of ones self worth blah blah

It was a name that Dave "Moomin" in our production department came up with one day and it beat out Flashes "Slayer" and "Wyvern" suggestions

No its because if someone saw the word Geo in reference to a new marker, they would just think it was a typo

Way too quick for me Uziel Gal - wanted to say the same thing
Fi$h came up with Geo, and they went with it. Nothing more, I'm afraid. I'm sure it has a special, unique meaning for each of us
