Airbus has a data sharing platform called "Skywise". Wise is a very low frequency word (for you native speakers, how often do you hear the word "wise" outside of EQ or religious/spiritual context?), so it's very odd to use this word for cloud sharing.

Which made me think, wasn't there someone, who requested an elf logo for NASA? How long ago was this? Probably too long ago to be them the same person, but I can see someone from NASA later working at an aviation company.

Good chance that the name was inspired by an ElfQuest fan!  Skywise Wink

Elfquest forum Archives:
In a comment (reposted by Thornbrake) SpiralLight referred to this event:

"Wendy was asked by NASA to create an entirely new ‘ElfQuest’ style character – Starfire. ‘ElfQuest’ fan and leader of the NASA Lewis ELF team, Dennis Stocker, contacted Richard Pini to request the character to represent the Enclosed Laminar Flames experiment on shuttle mission STS-87 in 1997. This is the first comic book character ever to join NASA into near-Earth space."

If I remember right it is also addressed in "The Wolfrider's Guide to The World of ElfQuest".
