    Hmm, famine, pirates, anarchy, guns. Is the HKU Foundation that feral?

  2. Totally bizarre name. I like your play with word association AW, which illustrate all the negative aspects that come to mind when the name Somali pops up.

    I would be very interested to hear how she chose this name... does she like Africa? Is she sympathetic to famine victims?

  4. Apparently, the HKU Foundation does some charitable work. But this begs the question, did Somali get her name before or after the foundation was formed?

    I too would be very interested to know how this, and many other 'novel' names, are chosen.
