Battlestar Wiki:Think Tank/Research proposal for Cylon name

From Battlestar Wiki, the free, open content Battlestar Galactica encyclopedia and episode guide

—I'm new here, so I apologize in advance if I am submitting this incorrectly.

I propose to research the name of CYLON itself. If man created the cylons, then theoretically we gave them the name. Is it an acronym such as: CYbernetic Living Organisms Networked or CYLON? Or is it a partial anagram for Colony?

I have searched to no avail and was just curious if anyone knew. As far as my knowledge the examples I have used in the questions posed are entirely my own creation and I have exhausted my Google searches on the web for answers.


Thank-you in advance for any information provided and look forward to talking with you in the future....

sincerely,

Chroy of Caprica
