NEW NAME, LOGO, AND IDENTITY FOR AZU E MOBILITY
“AZU” has been suggested by our CTO Mr. Teckkee Shih. He really didn’t expect the 3 letter word is so meaningful. TK thinks the name found him and not the other way around.
The name AZU derives from the Sanskrit word for “FAST”, denoting the powerful energies.
AZU is a mythical creature that uses its powers to magically make others fall in love with it. It is known to be one of the most beautiful creatures in mythology and its perfect body has a fragrance that is irresistible to all. The name for Ancient Sumerian and Babylonian physicians was AZU.
Sanskrit is a member of the Indo-Iranian subfamily of the Indo-European family of languages. Its closest ancient relatives are the Iranian languages Avestan and Old Persian
