Where does the name Piwik come from?
As you may know before being called Matomo, for 10 years the project was called Piwik! When working on the first version of Piwik, Matthieu was looking for a name that was unique, easy to remember, easy to pronounce, with as few letters as possible, and for which the domain name was still available. After a few hours of deliberation and creative thinking, and becoming inspired by the word “kiwi”, the name “Piwik” was born. The name ‘Piwik’ does not have a particular meaning, but we are on a mission: “To create, as a community, the leading international open source web analytics platform, that gives users full control of their data.”
