There was, and maybe still is, a synthetic fibre called Orlon which could be spun rather like wool and used for jerseys and I think soft furnishings. No idea where the Or bit came from, but the -lon clearly echoes nylon (which was named after New York and London ...).

I'd go the Orlando route if I were you!
