Comments for the name Moa

Comments for MOA:

This has gotten SO trendy in Sweden that I feel like I can't use it myself. Hardly anyone was named Moa when I grew up. I knew one, met her when I was 11 and my comment to her was "that's not a name is it?", I had never heard of it.
Now, alas, it is everywhere.
I believe this is the word used for mother in Danish. I worked with a Moa whose boyfriend had many Danish friends, and they always said things like "So how is your mother?" and giggled.
It is pronounced MO-ah.

Moa is not Danish for mother, 'mor' is, but I see the joke, because 'mor' is sometimes pronounced 'moar'.
