From the Ant Homepage:
"Why do you call it Ant?
According to Ant's original author James Duncan Davidson, the name is an acronym for "Another Neat Tool".
Later explanations go along the lines of "Ants are doing an extremely good job at building things" or "Ants are very small and can carry a weight a dozen times of their own" - describing what Ant is intended to be."
