Aquarius naming

Post by acusticaudio » Fri Aug 30, 2019 4:55 am

Why was the name Aquarius chosen for the utility? Obviously, there is the Acqua connection. But was there more meaning behind the selection?

Outside of Italy, it may be seen as Acustica taking an astrological/New Age bent:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aquarius_(astrology)
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Age_of_Aquarius

These correlations can signify questionable reliability/foundations in the minds of potential customers, who may thus avoid the products.

"Aquifer" might be an interesting naming solution, as it signifies the starting point/source of the Acquas and removes the religious/astrological connotation.
