    At work one day I was bored, and trawled through the corporate directory and had a look at the names in the Hongky brand. Some interesting names, out of just a few dozen people.

    Libra Chan, Darky Fung, Salex Ho, Yammie Ng, Elvin Poon and Coral Yip.

    A few that you have already highlighted. As weird as always.

  2. Thanks AW. It would be great if you can provide more of these names (and their professions or general description) so that I can add it to my growing list. Giving you full credit, naturally!!

    I still suspect that Hongkies as a group have more novel or weird names compared with other Chinese communities such as Singaporeans, Taiwanese and 'pesky' mainlanders. I have often pondered what the reason(s) is/are?

    I am only on a short term contract, so I don't think I should really do much more poking around. I don't think the directory gives any more details.

  4. No worries AW. Your comments on this site are much appreciated.
