Unlike me, who chose the EXACT word in Hawaiian for my stage name "Formica" for my TC handle.

Does this mean it will now be illegal to catch this fish? They are a popular aquarium species.

Hahaha!
Lahikai, *I* don't even know what "hini" means!

And it's not pronounced "hiney" (like shiny) as in your 'okole (bum).
It's like the -kini in "bikini."
Had I known more Hawaiian when I came up with the name (actually for a Don Ho cover band in 2000-ish), I might have spelled it Formikahine, as in wahine. But the -hini like bikini is more sonorous to me.

But some of you, I have been told, pronounce it like a hiney, and that's ok.
As long as you're a cute kane.
