Was just checking if I didn't post this question somewhere else too - gosh I think I'm becoming a gremlin..

Ok here goes....

From the Arabic word "xirapha" meaning 'one who walks swiftly"

thanks ZZ.

Heres an easy one, so hurry all you boffins.

My name drives from the Dutch word "weit" which means wide.
Who am I?

:redface: still waiting for the answer :redface: then saw I got it. Sorry...

My name is derived from the 'ghuss-ghuss' or 'gzig-gzig' sound of my call...

The Dutch word is wijd. Not weit.

For the non Dutch/Afrikaans speaking forumites: Imagine a 007 movie and a Russian agent saying the English word white. That sort of sounds like the Dutch wijd. Which is how this whole mix up started about the wide-lipped and hook-lipped rhino. (= original names)
