What's with the name?
I'm a big fan of J.R.R. Tolkien, especially The Silmarillion.
- Eru - the creator of the universe
In the beginning Eru, the One, who in the Elvish tongue is named Ilúvatar,
made the Ainur of his thought; and they made a great Music before him. In this
Music the World was begun; for Ilúvatar made visible the song of the Ainur,
and they beheld it as a light in the darkness. And many of them became enamoured of its
beauty, and of its history which they saw beginning and unfolding as in a vision.
Therefore Ilúvatar gave to their vision Being, and set it amid the Void,
and the Secret Fire was sent to burn at the heart of the World; and it was called Eä.
