Where did Bluetooth get its name?

It’s believed the technology got its name from the 10th century king of Denmark and Norway, Harald Bluetooth, who united the warring tribes of his region.

The technology was given his name partly because it was developed in Sweden (one of the regions he united) and partly because the technology, too, aims to unite different devices under one uniform connection.

    Fry: I know, we'll call them Popplers!
    Bender: Good idea.
