Ok so we get the Panda thing, why Spartan Panda?
I could give you some spiel about Spartans being traditional warriors, who had very few comforts and luxuries, the core building blocks of any great website; plain, simple and functional. The panda represents the fun element which helps attract users' attention and keep them interested.
