Ostinato == stubborn in Italian but I wonder if it is named after the ostinato music pattern [1], also of Italian origin but different context.

Yes, it is based after the musical term! I explained a bit about the naming in the Packet Pushers Podcast[1] (around the 6:40 mark)

Disclosure: I'm the creator of Ostinato

in music, ostinato is 'a continually repeated musical phrase or rhythm.' which kinda makes sense no ;) ?
