probably the most famous greek word, that just everybody knows , or seems to
 
Malakas : if nobody knows this one, and what it means in greek ... gues you are one - hahahaha
 
and yet ... we have
 
1) Strait of Malacca (yes, pronounces exactly the same) - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Strait_of_Malacca
 
2) Malakas and Maganda (literally, Strong One and Beautiful One) are Filipino versions of Adam and Eve. (which kinda makes sense.... adam was a complete malaka to succumb o the charms of eve ...and all us guys since then ....wellll needs i say more :lol:
 
3) seriously? a hotel called malaka? like .... who do they cater for ? Malaka Hotel

 

4) and then there is this nigerian woman with her own website Mind Of Malaka

hahahaa

 

forgot about them

 

would have been ultimately ironic if it was a beer maker ... as in it implied it would give you the shits

but nope, it a french company that makes some kind of tools

 

which in a way, is ironic, i mean whoever came up with that name must have been a complete tool - hahahaha
