"Vorbis is the name for the specific audio compression scheme used to create OggVorbis files. It is part of the Ogg project, which is a blanket project designed to create a fully open multimedia system. Right now, OggVorbis is the only functional part of the Ogg project which is anywhere near completion."

If memory serves me, they come from Terry Pratchett's books!! There is no more clever derivation other than in the meanings in the books.
