A number of names were considered for the club but finally “Eye of Ra” was suggested and stuck. The Eye of Ra is an ancient Egyptian being, also known as the “Eye of Horus” or the daughter of Ra. It is seen as a sign of protection, the “all seeing eye”. Whilst being a protector the eye is also seen as a sign of health and the individual components were used as measurements particularly relating to medicine.
