Ur-ban refers to that which is banned or prohibited in the city or civilization. It means that which is banned with the establishment of the city or civilization, and that which began in the city which is banned. The city was and is important for the development of civilization and has many of mankind's great achievements, i.e. art, architecture, government, great cathedrals, commerce, industry, etc. Ur is the first city in history and is in present day Iraq where, along with Iran, civilization is thought to have begun in the area of the Tigris and Euphrates rivers.

More an interesting snippet of trivia that anything else BUT... did you know that Urban was also the name of a papal lineage in the medieval period? The Crusades were triggered largely by a speech by Pope Urban II at Clermont, France in 1095.
After hearing about the Turkish incursions into the Christian East, Pope Urban II set about preaching the morality of crusading.
