Back in the day it was me and plasmajohn working on the driver. He had concerns over naming it anything that may be copyrighted (eg itvc), so he suggested ivtv (or ivytv) and it was Good Enough (tm) so it stuck. I was more interested in getting it working than naming it.
Unfortunately, no special or hidden significance there :)
