So I was talking to my little brother since he said good morning in chat. And we started most mornings talking about our dogs Cisco and Kili. But once I reply I learn that I can't write my puppies name?! How did Kili become an offensive word? Does it mean something else in another language? Wasn't sure so thought I'd ask some of you guys since your from other parts of the world 

 Hope my dogs name isn't anything rude or bad lol, need him to get the ladies around campus hehe

Kili is a very offensive word of calling older man little boy, I am not English(Lan) so I don't know. K-i'hi li, is a name of one of the hobbit on Tolkien book, Lord of the RIngs. Kili is also albanian for Chile. 

It could also exist in San or Khoi, But it might take a while to verify. But its definitely doesn't exist in any Southern African language. Although variation of kile, and khile ect exist, but they aren't offensive. 

But atleast the latter qualify, but someone has to verify. 

Just because something isn't a lie does not mean that it isn't deceptive. A liar knows that he is a liar, but one who speaks mere portions of truth in order to deceive is a craftsman of destruction.....Gedleyihlekisa: Oracle the postremogeniture

Yeah I just named him after Kili from lord of the rings haha :) Love those books, just confused me in chat and couldn't find much on the internet, of course as I type this he pees on the floor though.... Got to love puppies...
