    I think Bopha is such an ugly name. Same with Sopeap, for a girl.

    I agree, especially names that start with “So”.

    Khmer nickname are the worst:

    Srey Noun
    Lotto
    Ah Kmow
    Ah Ca Map
    Ah Ta Gowl
    Srey Mom*
    Me Ca Map

    …………

    *This one time, when I was in Vegas, we met this one dealer at the Luxor named, “Srey Mom”, that was the name on her name tag, and her co-workers even called her that.

    These names are close to what I am naming mine. I am naming my baby girl arriving in March, Savannavy… Sovann after my dad…and I got Navy by taking the D out of my name and replacing it with an N. It’s pronounce just like Savanah but with a Vy at the end.

    My grandmother nicknamed me Nounchea ( because I was so sickly, she wanted me to be well)–no one calls me that of course.

    but my little brother’s nickname isn’t very nice, but is kinda funny–ah svut. ( he was really skinny growing up and then got a bit chubby and then thin again–the skin on his face is stretchy now, he could pull it out like a mask, weird.)

    and my little sis is called “srey toydth” ( she’s only 4’9)–but I think its cute, it fits her.
