The meaning behind the expression "Aunt Flo"?

Yes, I do know it means menstruating .

I've still become interested what's the myth behind that expression. Why it's called Aunt Flo? I tried Google but found nothing. I guess you native-English speakers can perhaps know an explanation for that.

I'm going to guess, because it flows out...

No myth Tamma, just a less intrusive/embarrassing way of saying 'menstrual cycle'.

I think it somewhat symbolizes having an unwelcome house guest for a weekend. "Gosh darnit, Aunt Gertrude is coming to town and I can't stand the woman!" But chose "Flo" because it, well, flows. =]
