    Ga Noi means "black chicken". (I know a little Vietnamese). How were you able to import her from Vietnam? [​IMG]

    Ga Noi does not mean black chicken lol


    According to "Đại Nam Quốc Âm Tự Vị" a linguistic research book in Vietnamese language, published by a scholar named Huỳnh Tịnh Của (Volume II, in 1896 - page 155), the word "Nòi" means:

    Nòi = bloodline, breed. (Vietnamese writing uses diacritical mark)
    Gà Nòi = A special type of chicken people breed for fighting purpose

    Oh. Well, I was right about Ga meaning chicken (I can read the menu at the Vietnamese restaurant). [​IMG] [​IMG]
