Where does the "8 finger" come from in 8 finger cavatelli?

Because we have 8 fingers and 2 thumbs.

How come its not called 2 thumb cavatelli then?

 

I was thinking its because the noodles are about the length of 8 fingertips side by side.

You knead the cavatelli using your 8 fingers, not the thumbs.

 

 

Once the tubular pasta (spaghetone) is made you can go one finger, two fingers, etc. cavatelli to give them the final shape.

So in that video (don't speak Italian), is that still 8 finger cavatelli?
