Um, I have never heard of a blonde being referred to as a "mona" in Spanish. Might be rather insulting since mona is actually a female monkey.

Mona is a dairy brand in The Netherlands, as well as a female first name.

Try Brazilian Portuguese then... Here "mona" is how transsexuals* and transvestites* refer to each other and are referred to.


(* Not that I find any kind of sexual preference demeaning at all, but trust me, calling someone "mona", even among transsexuals and transvestites, has a demeaning connotation...)


Anyway, it's "Mona" from "Monad", the mathematical construct found in group theory, and in the particular case of this OS, "Monad" the adaptation of this construct to allow sane representation of side-effects on functional programming languages.


(Be thankful it's not 'echo MonadOS | sed s/M/G/' ...)



Edit: correct usage of prepositions in English language still mystify me.

Do you think that might be related to that analysis of the Mona Lisa back in the 80's which concluded that the Mona Lisa was likely a self-portrait. Hence the enigmatic smile?

I've always been rather partial to that view.

As a dyed in the wool heterosexual, I believe I'm not really qualified to make an appreciation on this subject.
