It is called Hibernate. The reason is that if you produce a SQL late in the autumn, you can take a nap until spring and wake in time to see the query come back. There is an old Latin proverb which says "nomen est omen". That certainly does hold true for Hibernate. The name does describe the behavior of the applications written using it. Also, the framework itself can be a real bear.....
