Why The Name Ocarina?

An Ocarina is a sweet sounding musical instrument that was made famous in 1870s in the UK by two brothers called Mezzetti from Budrio in Italy. It is a wind instrument made from ceramic material and became famous again in the computer game Zelda in more recent times. We liked the name and its association with something beautiful of old combined with new technology.
