About our name
Our name is Latin:
cybaea (latin), ae, f.: trading vessel; a transport, cargo, or merchant ship.
It refers to a merchant ship of Greek origin that was common in the
Mediterranean. Mentioned in Latin only by Cicero in the orations
against Verres, it is described as
beautiful and richly adorned.
We prefer the translation “trading vessel”—isn't that what every
company is? Pronunciation was probably with an initial [k] sound but
everybody uses a [s] sound, like
cyber-, so that is that we go with, with the final e and a
each pronounced separately.
