The ancient greek word euporia (εὐπορία), according to the LSJ Lexicon, means “ease, facility, of doing a thing” and, as opposed to poverty, “plenty, abundance”. In the philosophical tradition, it was also used in opposition to aporia (ἀπορία), as “solution of doubts or difficulties”. Euporos is the person “full of resources or devices, ingenious, inventive”. Last, but not least, we like the random assonance with the word euphoria.
