Why is Ionic called Ionic?

I’m just curious. Does anybody know how they came up with that name?

When we started working on Ionic we were a small software company building app design tools (Codiqa and Jetstrap, if anyone remembers). We had an idea to build a better mobile web UI framework but needed a name.
I remember spending weeks writing every name that came to mind on a big whiteboard, and “Ionic” was the one we hated the least :joy:
