I like the story of a visit to Tonga as we had a visit there a couple of years ago and also compared it with Fiji. I like this bit:
On one of these rides back to our hotel room, we were talking about the similarities in the Pacific islands when we came up with names.
Makereta and I were talking about how Lauans (Where I have maternal links to) name their children with names that had meanings literally.
Our facilitator from SPREP Nanette Woonton, who came from the Cook Islands, told us of how someone from the Cooks was named "MyMamaandPapamademebehindtheEmpirecinema" (My Mama and Papa made me behind the Empire cinema and Samoan Iutita Loau remembered a friend whom they only refer to as Wales had his first name as WalesversusWesternSamoa which also included the name of the venue and the score including the year the game was held. It was in fact Samoa's first game against Wales.Here is the full story from today's Fiji Times.
