Abazard is the successor to Quelo, whose trademark was sold to another company in 1988.
Quelo was, and Abazard now is, a sole propietorship (owner Dick Curtiss) licensed for business in Washington State.
There was some electronic engineering work done in the early days of Quelo, but the main focus became software.
Quelo evolved into Quelo, Inc. as a result of developing a product and building up the company to market it.
The product, a full featured package for Motorola 68000 family assembly language software development,
and Quelo trademark were sold to Avocet Systems, Inc. in 1988.
Quelo and Abazard are made-up names having no intrinsic meaning.
A spanish speaking friend pointed out that 'que' and 'lo' would translate from Spanish to 'what' 'this'.
How appropriate and totally by chance!
Abazard came from several requirements: float near the top in alphabetical listings, have no intrinsic meaning,
unlikely to be in use to avoid trademark squabbles and suitable for possible music product marketing
(Abazard published a music book and performed optical music recognition research).
