Okay, but why "Debian" and not "Nifty" or something?

Okay, I see from the FAQ what Debian *is* but I'm wondering where the name
came from.  Why "Debian"?  Is it named after someone named "Deb"?  Is it 
from the Greek word for "give" (like "debit")?  Is it an acronym?

I can't believe I'm the first person to ask this.
