AVeiN! translates into "~ArcView einfach ins Netz!" which is German for something like: "Loading ~ArcView maps into the web made easy!", so the correct English translation would be something like "LAmitwme!", which is even worse, so lets stick to AVeiN!.
From the project Homepage
AveiN! is based on the proprietary GIS ~ArcView (please read the ESRI Disclaimer) and functions as an interface between the GIS and the Open Source Software UMN Mapserver. AveiN! simplifies the process of getting an interactive map in the internet working also for non-UMN professionals.
