    According to the manufacturer, Intuitive Surgical, because of Leonardo da Vinci's interests in anatomy and (what we'd now call) robotics:

    Why 'da Vinci'

    The name "da Vinci " stems for the 15th century inventor, painter, philosopher and Renaissance man: da Vinci is widely known for advancing the study of human anatomy. He participated in autopsies, produced many extremely detailed anatomical drawings and planned a comprehensive work of human and comparative anatomy.

    His study of human anatomy eventually led to the design of the first known robot in history. This design, which has come to be known as "Leonardo's Robot," was probably made around the year 1495 but was rediscovered in the 1950s. da Vinci was intrigued by mechanics and automation. He developed a number of mannequins including a mechanical knight.

    The surgical robot was named after Leonardo da vinci. As far as I know, Leonardo da vinci as invented the first robot. It has also used in anatomical accuracy and three-dimensional details to bring his works to life.

    It comes from Leonardo da Vinci, a rather well-known artist, craftsman, and inventor. Perhaps you've heard of him?
