What's In A Name?

Recommended Posts

~

To continue this thought:

I do use other aliases such as Wizard for the internet/email address/domain which was given to me by friends/family over many years for my computer work and by those who have witnessed my performance of miracles, and Kali, a demigod, which is representative of my true nature. :o

It originated I think in 1945 in the Philippines when helicopters were flying evacuation mission off a liberty ship in WWII or something. The name caught on in Vietnam right after I got there and became the name of MASH hospital ambulance helicopters throughout the war. If you google, there is a Dustoff Assn for MASH helicopter pilots. And..

Medevac helicopters

I actually thought your name was a joke. It's a common joke to say your name is Kevin Hunt....amongst merchant marines I've sailed with, and some U.S. Air Force guys I've known. The joke being....the abbreviated version...K.Hunt or Khunt.....if you get my drift.

You must have known this?

Do Thai surnames have meanings such as '-son' in Nordic countries, Mac in scotland, -fitz, -evich/aya (russian)

I understand that Sino-Thai's can be distinguished by the surname easily..

Most UK surnames come from a trade, or ethnic group.

Why do you ask me such a question of which I haven't got the slightest clue except that som chai could loosely be translated as orange man and thus all Somchai's might happen to be descendants of an orange seller. Have you Google'd 'Somchai' ?

In England, as I pointed out somewhere else, this is indeed a joke , but not for anyone over the age of 12.

That is totally consistent with the fact that US Marines and Air force chappies also find it funny.

Oh and Blinky Bill, of course.

I just read this again. You meant that didn't you?  :D

That's brilliant. :o

Do you honestly believe that having had this name since I was born I'd never heard that 'joke' ?

I'm absolutely serious here (for the first time ever on Thai Visa)  - I hadn't heard that little gem since I was 12. Get it?

Nobody over the mental age of 12 (in England) thought that was funny, so I hadn't heard that little gem for nearly 40 years.

Why do I keep hearing it on Thai Visa? Oh, I see it's all falling into place now..... Sorry, I didn't realise. My apologies.

It reminds me though of the Monty Python sketch .

1st man : 'Hello my name is Mr. Smoketoomuch"

2nd man: 'well you should try to stop'

1st man: ' I'm sorry, I don't understand?'

2nd man: ' Your name is Mr Smoketoomuch I said 'you should try to stop.  ...... smoking?'

              'I'm sorry, stupid joke, you must hear it all the time?'

1st man: ' No I've never heard it before.That's the first time. I never thought about it . That's quite funny, actually'

Cheers, thanks for that. You made my day. :D
