China reminds me of Cockney Rhyming Slang, as in
"Alright me old china?"

Blame - what does China mean in rhyming slang? <thinks hard>

I like China (and India for that matter) for names, but think Jamaica is a bit ott.

It was a bit crappy of you to do a hmm face when someone told you her children's names though.

Yes China is vagina, that's why the T'pau song was considered so hysterical when I was at school.

'China in my hand'

DiamondHead Thu 09-Jul-09 18:27:24

I had a Victorian relative called Argentine.
