Re: [Vala] why this new and innovative programming language called Vala?

Another possibility could be the Seeress Vala . . from which the Völuspá came.

 . . . mixing past and future together ;-) . . .

Seeress: an ancient mythological character, who's able to foresee.
Language: Somehow innovativ idea and "new" programming language utilizing "ancient" C

 . . . or something like that :-P . . .

That's why I called my Ruby binding generator for Vala "Valar" !

Also because it's Vala + R.
