Random question... not sure if this is actually what they named themselves after, but I find it weird that a company would name themselves with this meaning:

invidia
definition: envy: spite and resentment at seeing the success of another (personified as one of the deadly sins).

It is true but not modern day envy but an older meaning which is targetting vision and sight.
