WHY COVUM IS CALLED COVUM
Covum is a combination out of the terms ”Columbus” and the latin word “ovum” meaning egg. Covum is also a synonym for the saying “Egg of Columbus”. The creation and choice of this name is explained by the origin of this saying:
"Columbus was dining with many Spanish nobles when one of them said: 'Sir Christopher, even if your lordship had not discovered the Indies, there would have been, here in Spain which is a country abundant with great men knowledgeable in cosmography and literature, one who would have started a similar adventure with the same result.' Columbus did not respond to these words but asked for a whole egg to be brought to him. He placed it on the table and said: 'My lords, I will lay a wager with any of you that you are unable to make this egg stand on its end like I will do without any kind of help or aid.' They all tried without success and when the egg returned to Columbus, he tapped it gently on the table breaking it slightly and, with this, the egg stood on its end. All those present were confounded and understood what he meant: that once the feat has been done, anyone knows how to do it." (Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Egg_of_Columbus)
