...that I'll cut you some slack for not following instructions. :)

"Ardis" comes from the Latin "ardens, ardentis", meaning "hot, glowing, burning, fiery". Also springing from the same Latin root is the English word "ardent", meaning: "having, expressive of, or characterized by intense emotion; fervent."

Alternately, "Ardis" can be taken to mean "from the forest of Arden" in England. This forest was the setting for Shakespeare's comedy, *As You Like It*.
