The name Eau De Nil when translated from French means water of the Nile. From my simple Google search I can't quite tell if the name is accurate. Personally I think it reminds me of the calming colour of the deep sea. The cool tones of green blending with a touch of blue, combining into a soothing shade of turquoise that looks good on paper. Plus, it isn't too loud. It also brings to mind Pilot Iroshizuku Ku-Jaku except Diamine Eau De Nil has a matte finish.
