The word "Orca" is derived from the classic Latin language, a zoological term, "Orca orcinus" (as stated in the film), or more accurately, it is referred to as "Orcinus orca". The phrase, "Orca orcinus", according to the film, translates into the English language, as "bringer of death". See more

I'd tell him that I was sorry. I hope he'd forgive me.
