Hello. I'm new here. I love your website. I noticed a small error on the entry for Ninja. It says that Niña is a Spanish form of Nina. Actually in Spanish, niña is not a name, but a word meaning "girl".

Also, do you think the name Ninja could have anything to do with the Japanese ninja?

Hi pepper

Thank you for your message. I checked my books and updated "Ninja". I don't think the name has anything to do with the Japanese ninja, but of course it is possible that some parents naming their child Ninja might have been inspired by them.

Kind regards
