# The Name's origin orbits around a profession that was
very common: It was the person who travelled the
marketplaces (or was asked to do so), to calibrate
the weighs, scales and other metrics used to measure
each and everything. It comes from the
german word "eichen" (~to calibrate),
"Eichner" (~the person, who does this)
and somehow the "i" turned into a "u".
[no explanation for that]

# The origins orbit around "Nürtingen" (am Neckar)
and "Oberlenningen", both typical clean swabian
smalltowns at the foot of the "Schwaebische Alb".
