What's in a Name?

Saw a commercial for the Kindle Fire, and heard this quote, which is where they got the name. I had kinda wondered–if not enough to go look it up. Interesting.

Voltaire: “The instruction we find in books is like fire. We fetch it from our neighbours, kindle it at home, communicate it to others, and it becomes the property of all.”
