To precises Ramon text

First: I'ts in arabic and "Zarkaa al Yamama" mean THE BLUE DOVE refering to a 
women in the muslim islamic religion who was a non beleiver and due to an event in 
her life convert to the islamic religion.

A lot of Arabic names streets, citys, building... as Ramon says are named to honor 
her name. There is also a famous battle in year 633 the YAMAMA battle who is 
probably connected to this. But my Arabic studies ends here.

Feel free to coment an precises but the MYSTEROUS satellite has a definite arab 
origin as per this name.
