You know,  I just wondered why it is called patreon.  I would have called it paytron, the paying patron. Sounds reasonable? For me too.

So what does the "e"  stands for? I checked this out in dictionary but couldnt find an explanation, also googled it. (Okay used duckduckgoes but thats kind of the same.) Nothing!  

So can I have a clarification, please?
