The Orville is a sci-fi about the crew on the ship by the same name. Out of universe, why was this name chosen for the show (and the ship)? It appears to be a person's name, but there isn't anybody so far who is named after that. Also, it doesn't seem to have any relation to Star Trek, which it borrows heavily from.
So why did Seth McFarlane, or any of the other producers, choose the name "The Orville for the name of the ship and the series?
