Etymology[edit | edit source]
"Zwill" might be based on Zwilling, the Grman word for twin.
The start of its name (ゾーリン, Zōrin?) derives from "Solingen" (ゾーリンゲン, Zōringen?). Solingen, also known as the "City of Blades", is a city in North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany. It has long been renowned for the manufacturing of fine swords, knives, scissors and razors.
