That one is Greek origin from aneimon or "naked, unclad, without clothing" which is to refer to the panicles of the sporangia.
I think we can look at it like this Your noncyclic pathway liberates 4H+ from two water molecules. We're doing that because to get one O2, you've got to split 2H2O. This happens in photosystem II. So in the next step (you know, really broadly) the electrons are passed to cytochrome b6-f complex, where each electron allows it to pump 2H+ into the thylakoid ...
Sorry for the poor quality of the image, but its just as a reference for my answer. You have made the question too complex. From the figure, we find that 1 H2O gives 2 H+ and 2 e-. 2 e-, through quinone cycle, provide 4 H+ i.e. total 6 H+ which form 6/3 = 2 ATP i.e. 1 H2O => 6 H+ => 2 ATP Multiply this equation by 8 and you get: 8 H2O => 48 H+ => 16 ...
