The aurigo story
Just like Worcester and Kissimmee, our company name tends to get mispronounced on the first read. Although it looks like Aww-REE-go, Aurigo is actually pronounced as OR-e-go.
Our name is derived from Auriga, a constellation that lies in the northern hemisphere and means “the charioteer” in Latin. In Greek mythology, Auriga is usually depicted as a charioteer, holding the reins of a chariot with his right hand, while carrying a goat and its two young kids on his left arm. A variation of the Auriga myth tells the story as Neptune rising from the sea in a chariot.
True to our name, our conference rooms at the Austin headquarters have names like Epsilon, Elnath, and Capella, stars that form the Auriga constellation.
