When I was pregnant with my daughter, I decided to name her after a favorite local water source.
The water I used was a local lake in the Philippines.
It had a deep yellow color, which made it look like a very good name for the island I wanted to name after.
In my case, the name was a little bit more poetic, and also made sense for the country in which we lived.
I have to say, I’ve always been a bit of a water geek, and I had a big stash of water from my previous trip to Vietnam that I was happy to give back to my motherland.
So, my husband and I decided on the name of the island we would name after as a gesture of goodwill to the country.
What’s the secret?
It has to do with the fact that it’s the name that’s the closest to the word “coral”.
The coral is the name for a kind of coral reef that covers much of the Pacific.
A little bit of coral is one of the most important things in a waterway, especially in remote areas.
This is one reason why it’s so important for a name to be both memorable and simple enough that children will easily pronounce it.
“The name ‘Pangolins’ is an accurate representation of the islands unique culture and the island’s name,” explains Nandini.
“It also captures the richness of its fishing culture.”
As I’ve mentioned before, there are a few common waterway names that have been around for thousands of years.
They’re named after local fish or animals, or sometimes just a name that seems fitting.
For example, the word ‘turtle’ is derived from the Dutch word for “toothed turtle”.
And the word for ‘fish’ is actually derived from fish.
And of course, there’s the ‘water’ part.
Coral reefs are home to many endangered species.
If you’re looking to find a name for an island, it’s best to start with the closest word to the water.
