Orkut's parents should have checked his name for regional variations

by Suw on February 28, 2004

From a conversation on #joiito, it seems that yes, Orkut* really does mean ‘orgasms’ in Finnish, but better still, ‘join Orkut’ actually means ‘Joi’s orgasms’.

I’d been wondering what the screaming was every time I opened my emails…

*Orkut-the-site is named after Orkut-the-guy, who developed it.

Now, who said his parents *didn't* check…
For all we know, this was a private joke between little Orkut's parents, and the word is out now!
