    I would have thought that it'd be a male name, if anyone was crazy enough to choose it.

    There must be a Country, Province, Nation or State wandering around Hongkers then. Not to mention City, Street, Road, House, Table, Chair...

  2. Thanks AW. I think you are pre-empting my future posts! Are Hongkies that predictable? Lol.

  3. Predictably weird, and often it seems like they chose their name by going to a random page of a book and choosing a random word or 2.

  4. I would add that there is an element of predictable 'creativity' involved, since they like to 'insert' 'substitute', 'delete' letters here and there too. Predictably weird and predictably creative!?
