NuWa's Origin

Nominated by Meng and Xingtao
Neutrino at Daya Wan
Chinese mythology (From Xingtao)
   - A nearly female figure in Chinese mythology is the goddess Nu Wa (sometimes Nu Kua-女娲). 
     According to one legend it was she who was the creator of mankind. So almost every 
     Chinese know who NuWa is.

From Brett
   - Another twist is "NuWa", in some lazy American English pronunciations 
     which you will often hear around here in Long Island, could be taken 
     to mean "newer" which is somehow fitting for our ever changing software.
   
   - Also, in Japanese, the phrase "Nu Wa" might mean "I'm talking about the 
     neutrino".  As in "nu wa daisuki" meaning "this neutrino, I like".
