The name is also inspired by Desiderius Erasmus, one of the most influential figures from the 15th century. He valued good education and also felt very strong about thinking for yourself. Erasmus is considered a real citizen of the world. Besides his birthplace Rotterdam, he also lived in Paris, Venice, Cambridge, Leuven and Basel.
