A lot of companies are named after Atlantis so I wouldn't get too hung up on the name. It may have been chosen because their geographical base of
operations was in flux. Instead of naming it after the town/city, etc. they called it something more neutral (perhaps with some ideal in mind). I can
understand why they wouldn't have named it after a planet/celestial body because life hasn't yet been discovered there (presumptuous). Nobody wants
to be wrong, after all!
Naming it for it's previous location may not have been convenient if they expected to move and naming it after the next, when they were still in the
first wouldn't have made any sense at all. On top of that, the founder seems to be doing double-duty in Madison, WI... so there's 3 different
locations. Retaining just a single name is far less confusing. I don't know what I would have picked if it had been my choice but these, I would have
Although, I can understand where you're coming from, given what "Atlantis" generally implies on a site like ATS!
Here, it's either some
technologically-advanced, lost utopia, Plato's creation or on the planet Atlantia in the Pegasus Galaxy (yes, I watch Stargate Atlantis too).
