Did someone here know why those stranges names were given for the differents case of sillogistic figure: babara,
baroco, babieri, etc...

I know they mostly came from the middle-ages logician Peter of Spain, but I do not find anything on the reason
why each particular name were given to each particular type of syllogism.
