Evidently it is the name of the bar that the original guys frequented when they came up with the idea   -  I will drink to that - Salute !

"In 2005, in Ivrea, Italy (main site of the computer company Olivetti), a project was initiated to make a device for controlling student-built interaction design projects with less expense than with other prototyping systems available at the time. Founders Massimo Banzi and David Cuartielles named the project after Arduin of Ivrea, the main historical character of the town.[6] "Arduino" is also an Italian masculine first name, meaning "brave friend".[7]"

Good thing they chose this more or less unique name in English-speaking worlds instead of some generic name like Processing. Most search results on google thus are not polluted by arduinos not related to this project.

I had a sudden double-take situation in a cafe in Hampton Court Palace gardens just outside London, when I saw the the word Arduino on the coffee machine.

From what I recall, the product was named after the cafe that the designers frequented when they were developing it.  The cafe was named after a medieval king that ruled the region.
