What is Momo?

I have been called Momo almost all my life.  No, Momo is not my Chinese name nor my English name.  It is my family nickname given to me by my family.  As the story goes, when I was introduced to the clan, my cousin declared to my grandmother that my cheeks were like "momo" (peaches in Japanese).  That name has stuck ever since that moment.  So obviously when I am thinking a name for my blog, Momo comes up.  But aside from what I know, what does Momo mean in the Western culture?


According to Urban Dictionary, Momo may mean:


1. The quintessential form of a woman. goddess,the perfect model of cuteness and innocence. Irresistable with the power to melt ones heart.

2. A generic insult used to describe one who is irritating, annoying, or an idiot. (synonyms include but are not limited too: ass, asshole, bastard, bitch, blockhead, bonehead, cocksucker, dick, dickhead, dolt, dope, dunce, fool, halfwit, idiot, imbecile, jackass, jerk, nincompoop, ninny, nitwit, numskull, rascal, scamp, schmo, schmuck, simpleton, son of a bitch, tomfool, twerp)

3. (noun) a playful insult; short for the word moron; closely related to the terms bafoon, blockhead, fool, idiot, jerk, and silly goose

4.  A great nickname for an amazing, talented, funny, loyal, and overall awesome best friend! You can't go wrong with the name momo! He's always there for you when you need him and can always cheer you up when your down.

In the most bizarre way, I think all these explanations fit the description of me one way or another depending on different situations.

So Momo it is.
