We have a Christian camp in our area called Camp Haluwasa after the hymn
"HAlleLUjah What A SAvior" and their lake is called Lake Hekemesi after the
hymn "HE KEeps Me SInging". It's a great way to come up with names that
have a Native American favor to them with out using a proper Native
American name that may mistakenly cause hard feelings. It's also a great
way to create passwords that you can remember and are not in a hacker's
May you all have a Happy Holiday! Hopefully this list will work in the New
Year. Just kidding, I didn't want to start a thread on that one.
