  Anyone know the etymology of this word (logo)?
  I'm curious, as I'd first guess the (Greek?) "logos" (science, study),
  but that doesn't make sense....
"logos" also means "word".  My estimation is that the name of the
company was stylized in a recognizable manner.  Now "logo" comes to
mean any identifying sigil or icon.  More semantic drift... what fun.
