What's with all the porn in Thailand?

I've noticed that a lot of players from Thailand have the word porn in them a lot. For example:

Chantawannop, Penporn (THA)
Choochom, Panomporn
Mulsap, Porntip (THA)
Pramualsuk, Pornrumpar (THA)
Summa, Tosporn (THA)
Tongsalee, Napaporn (THA)
Udomjirasak, Waraporn (THA)

Does it have some sort of meaning? My favourite is Pornrumpar Can anyone explain?

Thailand have two miss universes. One is Porntip Nakhirunkanok of Thailand was crowned Miss Universe in 1988. " Porn " means blessing.

By the way, now Porntip Nakhirunkanok is married to an American millionaire and lives in California.

Her husband operates big shopping mall business in the US, and is the co-owner (with his brother) of the NBA's Indian Pacers.
