What does 'Arduino' means?

During the early days of the project, before it had been forked off of Wiring, the founders often convened at a bar in Ivrea, Italy, named Bar di Re Arduino. The bar itself was named after Arduin of Ivrea, who was an Italian nobleman who reigned as Italy’s elected king between 1002 and 1014. So in honor of this meeting place, the project took on the Arduino name.
