Just bringing to the surface something you may have or may not have noticed.
Au = Gold
Ba = Barium
Zn or perhaps Mg?
Perhaps it's just coincidence. :s3
Edit: Barium is also derived from the greek word 'barys', meaning heavy. I"ve heard about the Barra being a bit heavy lately, perhaps it was named accordingly.
I love the BA guys, so no flaming please. Just had to chuck this bit of knowledge of mine in here.
