WHAT’S IN A NAME: ESKATON?

WHAT’S IN A NAME: ESKATON? What do a defunct vanity record label, a neighborhood of Dhaka, Bangladesh, and a French rock band have in common?

Each shares the name “Eskaton,” the same as the aging services provider in Northern California (www.eskaton.org).

Liberally translated from ancient Greek, “Eskaton” means “dawn of a new day,” which aptly represents an organization with a vision to transform the aging experience.

As for the origin of the other uses, it might just be the alternate explanation -- that it is a cool sounding word.
