That's because Io is the name of a princess of Argos in Greek mythology
who Zeus seduced then turned into a heifer so as to save her from the
wrath of his wife, Hera. Ip is just ... well, IP! It's meaningless!
(And it sounds funky too ...:) Most planets & their moons are named after
folks from Greek/Roman mythology. Don't think they're particularly
suitable for Kat planets since they might not have undergone the same
cultural developments as we did.
