    It is a mnemonic - a rule of thumb to help you remember it.

    There's a loop at the bottom of る, and it sounds like the beginning of the English word "loop". Other than that, you're right, there is no other connection.

    If it helps you remember how to pronounce it, then that is fine. If not, then just ignore it.

    Thank you.
    I just wonder why it is /l/ sound here. Shouldn't it be something like "roop"?
