When the rubber tube of a fountain pen is dipped in inkpot and pressed, the air inside comes out and when the pressure is released, the ink rushes in to fill the air space in the tube

Meaning of fountain is one which flows. Ink is a pure liquid which flows through body of a fountain pen and comes out through the nib and writes on paper.
