 What’s in a Thai nickname

Thomas Fuller had a good article titled “Thais ask: What’s in a Nickname” where he reports on the trend for parents to resort to the use English words as a substitute for the traditional Thai nickname. Instead of Dam (Black), Fon (Rain) or Meaw (Cat), the new generation goes by names such as Money, Bank, Seven.

A school teacher told Fuller about the confusion when more than one kid is nicknamed Bank. He solved the problem in a creative way: “In one classroom there were three children nicknamed "Bank." To tell them apart, fellow pupils had renamed the children "Big Bank," "Medium Bank" and "Small Bank."”

So far there are no reports of anyone nicknamed IMF.

Though Benz and Rolex are popular, too.

Can a Miss Starbucks be far behind?
