What it is

"Moxy" is a Django database backend for MySQL. Built on top of MySQLdb [0] and Eventlet [1], it uses eventlet.db_pool to provide a greenthread-safe means of accessing MySQL via MySQLdb's blocking calls.

Why Moxy?

Another member of the #eventlet channel on Freenode was soliciting for names of a reverse proxying HTTP server he wrote built off of Eventlet. I suggested the name "Moxy" which was well received until everybody started listing examples of other projects named "Moxy".

Since then it's become a kind of lame inside joke to suggest "Moxy" as the name for any new project.
