Obama Backwards, Me Forwards

The classicist Mary Beard is, astonishingly, the first person I know or read to observe that Obama backwards is "amabo," which, of course, is Latin for "I will love." Along w/ the East African connection, this means that I have two unexpected things in common with Obama: my name also means love in an unintended language -- Korean in this case.

No wonder I don't like him very much.

PS The plot thickens. There's an urbandictionary entry for "Sarang" that's clearly meant to refer to someone named Sarang.
