Marek has written a developer blog entry over at BIStudios.com! In it he talks about the name "ArmA"


As we're quickly approaching the release of ARMA 2 , the third instalment in Bohemia Interactive's award winning series of military PC simulations, it's a good time to clarify some things about the name and also explain why using Armed Assault 2 is wrong or why Arma is not a cheesy weird name as some English-centric souls may believe!

The meaning of Arma
Arma is originally a Latin word:
arma (
genitive armōrum); n pl, second declension (plural only; not used in singular form)
1. defensive arms, armor/armour, shields, weapons of war.
2. war
3. soldiers, military power
4. defence
5. tools
(Source: wiktionary.org, where you can also find the meaning of the word in other languages. There are quite some other meanings, for example I remember that in the Czech Army, soldiers used the word "arma" for a small food shop usually available near their barracks. There is also a small village Arma in Kansas, but how that can be related to our game I simply don't know. )
