1787 HKSAR Name of the Day

Kavinia Wong, account manager, Style Magazine, SCMP, Hong Kong 

Note: also see Lavinia Chang, who is a writer at SCMP.

Perhaps the writer Lavinia is well educated in English (and hence has a proper first name), whereas the local salesperson Kavinia is relatively lacking in English skills although she wants to stand out and be noticed (and thus chooses a novel made-up name)?
