Does anyone know the origin of this name? It looks like the Chinese character for it is 烏鷺, and in Korean it is 오로. I was wondering what is means.

Yes, it is another name for go. (I had to look it up. ;)) It means crow-heron, i.e., black-white, i.e., go.

Bill is right, at least for Cyberoro. From this page about Cyberoro (the server EdLee mentions):
Quote:
'오로(烏鷺)'의 유래는 까마귀와 백로. 까마귀와 백로의 싸움을 뜻하고 이것이 바로 바둑의 별명.


My translation:
Quote:
The origin of "오로(烏鷺)" is from the crow and the white heron. Signifying the fight between the crow and the white heron, it has become a nickname for go.
