Where did the name "Synfig" come from?Was it inspired by xfig?

I’m wondering was it?

Hi and Welcome here Bleachisbae


I mean the word “Synfig”

SINFG as a name looks ugly and is hard to pronounce (let’s have a try :stuck_out_tongue:)
So it has been changed to Synfig, which looks more “commercial”
(think about Samba under Linux, which is connected to SMB protocol)
