Hello, I'm new :-)

Can somebody explain to me the names "vcalendar" and "vevent" were
chosen, as opposed to just "calendar" and "event"?
Along with some other confusing short names for other properties.

Is there some reason for this?
I can see at least one reason for not using these non-obvious names:
alienating designers, who will have hard time with it.

But maybe I am missing some insight, please let me know!
