The names were decided from a poll, so you can bet your ass that even though the turks have shared a similar origin to the huns, not one will have decided to name the server Attila for the sake of an ancient tribal warlord, but rather that weaker boss they camped so very often.
On a side note I don't know what the alternatives in the poll were, but if that's the best one they could come up with shame on them.
I suppose it is a luxury problem, and in present day KO players can't afford to waste time on that. However I play GW2 and I decided where to play partly, because of the server's name. Although in GW2 you actually represent a server so that makes more sense I guess.
