    Now that my 40GB iPod is enroute, I need some help coming up with an approate name. I named my computer Waipahu after the City in Hawaii near wher I used to live. I'd like a Hawaiian City name or a Hawaiian word. However any I'll consider anything cool.

    Please, my mind is wheeling, and I need a name.

    iPoi, that would be good, but it would have to be i'Poi (EYE Poyee). I had thought of Ohana (Ohan'a) I was told it meant pearl, but reciently found out it means family. BTW a good Hawaiian English Translator/Dictionary is here: http://www.hisurf.com/hawaiian/dictionary.html

    That's menehune (MEH-nay-hoo-nay), not menehane. In Hawaii, the mischievous little people, or Menehune, are said to haunt the deep forests or the mountains of Pu'ukapele ("Hills of Pele"). They come out mostly at night to play tricks on people. They are said to be about two feet high, although some have been seen as small as six inches, capable of fitting in the palm of someone's hand [note: just like an ipod].

    My 3G 10GB is named Mervin,

    but I think that Aristotle would be a sweet iPod name!

    If you're gonna name your iPod after a Zappa, name it after Dweezil instead.

    ok not hawaiian, but i named my 3G 20GB iPod "Odessy" after the ship in the movie 2001, because its all white and shiny and has a mind of its own.

    So is Michael Jackson, but I don't recommend naming your iPod after him.

    I do like Pearl, I'd just like to find it in Hawaiian, if the word even exists.

    I think you should name your iPod either:

    The Real Dave Thomas Jr.

    or:

    Little Muffin Jr. #6
