Why the name “Erawatech”?

(pronounced: air-ah-wah-tek)

When I was coming up with company name ideas, I started with Olive (my daughter) and the symbol of the Olive Branch (for peace). 

I found a random reference to the phonetic spelling of olive branch in ancient Macedonian. It roughly came out as erawa

It’s a fortunate coincidence that erawa spelled backwards is aware.
