Kindi
Abu Yusuf Yaqub Ibn-Ishaq al-Kindi, born in Kufa (Iraq), and died in Baghdad (Iraq) - (800-870) - was a pivotal figure in the transmission of greek science into the Islamic World. A polymath, he left approximately 260 treatises on various scientific and philosophical subjects, including optics, astronomy, arithmetic, geometry, medicine, music, and metaphysics. Kindi arrived in Baghdad, the capital of the Islamic Realm, during the reign of the Abbassides Caliph Mamun, when the Greco-Arabic translation movement was in its early stages. Although he is remembered primarily as "the philosopher of the Arabs", Kindi was active in many areas of scientific research. His work is significant in the history of astronomy. He founded the philosophical program of study, centering on the works of Aristotle, without which the pursuit of Greek‐inspired astronomy, and the many contributions made by islamic theoretical astronomers, would have been impossible. He taught that philosophical knowledge can be acquired only through years of sustained study. Kindi began the systematic formulation of a scientific arabic terminology based on greek concepts. This idiom formed the groundwork for the later philosophical and scientific contributions of Farabi, Ibn-Sina, Ghazali, Ibn-Rushd, and others. And through latin translations of the 12th century, Kindi's influence also extended into Europe.

Kurepi
Kurepi is a simple anagram created from the name of the Greek philosopher Epicurus (German: Epikur). Epicurus expands the horizon of human beings by focusing on the vastness of the universe. The negligible role our existence plays should not scare us, but we should concentrate more on how to succeed in life and how to organize the coming day. The suggested name therefore stands for scientific awareness and consequential moralities.
