Whoa there, I can hardly read your comment for all the anger coming through my screen...

Also, names can have more than one origin, especially with short ones like this. It may be African; that doesn't mean it isn't Spanish also. And you're one to preach about ignorance. You aren't texting, so just use proper punctuation so people can actually understand what you wrote.

Well, I don't know why I'm feeding the troll...

My auntie is Filomena, she goes by Mena, and she cooks the best food in the world (mainly Italian as she is from Sorrento, Italy) I love her full name Filomena which is gorgeous but I'm not that keen on the Mena nickname. Prefer Filly.
