What Does Kulla Mean?

Kulla was the name of a Babylonian brick-god who used to be invoked, along with an architect-god called Musdam, at the beginning of a construction projects via elaborate incantation rituals. His presence was suppose to ensure that the foundations of a building would be laid correctly, the bricks were properly fashioned and the building process went smoothly.

Upon completion of the project, Kulla would be sent back whence he came with more rituals so he could be released to work on other projects.

Coming up with names for Software systems is harder than building them, but when we heard about old Kulla it struck a chord so we decided to make his legacy live on a little longer.
