"Native" names for non-NDNs
« on: July 24, 2011, 09:56:18 pm »
Funny but real:

During a Dance Event, a nuage woman for a whole day asked an Indian guy (great Hoopdancer) to be given an Indian name, no matter how hard the guy tried to explain he was not going to and why. She would'nt listen.
Finally the guy, pretty exhausted, said: "OK: your name will be The Italian Woman Who Wanted an Indian Name"

She was not really enthusiastic about her new name LOL!

Of course, plenty wannabes make up their own names. Sometimes those are pretty funny too because they don't understand kaona or the hidden meaning of words.
