The quintet…came up with the name SIREN on their own…However, the name itself is not an acronym.
“It’s almost like an onomatopoeia,” [Matthew] Gray said. “… There are multiple meanings, like emergency sirens and sirens as, like, warnings or like the singing sirens from ‘The Odyssey’ mythology, that sort of thing.”
