What’s in a name – contd.

Cho’s parents named their daughters by seniority. Most Burmese families do not take their father’s last name. Cho is the first born, so last name given is “Oo” (pronounced OOH). Second in line, last name given is “Latt”, meaning middle born, and third daughter and youngest, “Htwe” (pronounced TWAY).

Despite the lack of an inclusion of a flower in their names, they have their chosen favorites.

Cho is a fan of the ROSE, Latt is a fan of the ORCHID and Htwe is a fan of the PLUMERIA/FRANGIPANI.

By the way, MZ’s last name, like all her siblings take her father’s name. Names in Myanmar all depend on the parents’ preference.
