1318 HKSAR Name of the Day

Choco Chiu Ho-ying, younger twin to Emily Chiu Ho-suet who tragically died on 11 January 2012 after storming from a taxi amid a row with Choco before falling 50 meters from a flyover, Hong Kong

Note: From the perspective of Novel Names and from the newspaper account, Choco appears to be the conservative twin whereas Emily "veered to the wild side of life". Is this a contradiction in terms whether which twin has the novel name? I have mentioned before that one's choice of name is probably an expression of their sense of "creativity" and "conformity" and perhaps choosing a novel name is less "risky" than actually living a non-conformist lifestyle (i.e. a compensation?)? Food for thought perhaps?
