    OMG, I could sort of understand a pony obsessed teenage girl deciding this was a good name, but, seriously WTF?

  2. I wonder if his family name is like "ma" as in "horse." Sometimes people do those sorts of Chinese-English word plays.

  3. I agree AW. Mr Pony Ma, science officer at the school of nursing, can anyone take you seriously? Neigh.
    Thinking about it a bit more, he should have called himself Stallion … or even Winnie. Lol

    Thanks Joyce. That was what I wondered too. A Man Named Horse? But why Pony? Chinese surnames are not popularly used as nicknames (e.g. Ma Tsai, would mean little horse or pony, but I don't think people tend to use "Ma Tsai" as a nickname. I may be mistaken.).
    I would understand, in a weird kind of way, if it was Munching Pony of Munching Horse!
