I don't think so.

The lore is that Alan Kay made a folder on his disk for a new project  
to experiment with end-user personal computing environments. He named  
that folder "squeak", like you would name a temporary folder "blah",  
"temp", "scratch", etc. and when it was time to name the project, it  
just stuck.
