Is this something her english-speaking fans adopted or it is derived from French?

Curious, DelMonte

One of the french-speaking posters on one of the unofficial fanpage either pasted/transcribed an article or reported that s/he'd read in an article that Amelie had been nicknamed "Momo" by her friends/tennis aquaintances at the time (it was back in 99/00, so my memory is fuzzy)

It caught on with a bunch of us who started using it on multiple boards - and it has so many fun derivations (Momosapien - thank you Brian Stewart! - Momosexual....) I don't know taht I'd be able to stop using it if we found out the original poster was wrong :lol:

From what I know, it's from her last name - pronounced MO-res-MO, hence Momo :)

Actually momos are Tibetan dumplings, ie. Dim Sum.

Oh you won't believe it (maybe it's mentioned before, I don't know....)

Juju means:

1) An object used as a fetish, a charm, or an amulet in West Africa.
2) The supernatural power ascribed to such an object.
3) A style of Nigerian popular music featuring electric guitars and traditional drums.

Juju------object used as a fetish... :scratch:

repeating a syllable of a first name is used quite often in french in an affectionate way when the name is long, 3 syllables or more(cf. juju from justine, jojo from josephine, kiki, loulou, mimi...)
