Why is eBay called eBay?

There are several suggestions as to why this should be so, but perhaps one of the most plausible is that Pierre Omidyar (eBay's founder) previously ran his own consulting business under the name of Echo Bay Technology Group. When he wanted to change the name of his original auction site from Auction Web to Echo Bay, he found that name had already been taken and so shortened it to eBay.
