The “Leto” name

For purposes of continuity, this site is named after Leto Research, LLC, the author’s former and now dissolved research firm. The company had been named after his daughter, Dr. Leto Quarles, who in turn was named after the Greek mythological figure Leto. The mythological Leto, whose name approximately means “elusive”, is described by Hesiod as “Leto the dark-veiled”.  According to Heraclitus — the pre-Socratic philosopher who averred that “nature loves to conceal itself” — Leto’s son, the oracular god Apollo, is “the sovereign whose oracle is at Delphi [who] neither discloses nor conceals but indicates”.  It is a name that evokes engagement with elusive truths, hence the choice.
