AIKO /áɪkɔ/ is an abbreviation of "All Interfaces Kawaiku Optimized".
(*Kawaiku = adverb form of "Kawaii", which means "lovable" or "cute" in Japanese.)
"Cuteness", is kinda opposite to "Dinosaur" -- AIKO aims at obtaining modern tidiness. So the design of DualVCO, for example, is rather inspired by JP-08, not the original JUPITER-8.
AIKO in Japan
AIKO is named after the famous Japanese singer, aiko. She is one of those who represent the Japanese pop music scene!
