  • I founded a website with the name dogodigi. Now I am looking for a usable explaination for this word. Are there any suggestions?

    Things I found:

    - Swahili; dogo means "small"

    - Zarma; dogo means "tall man"

    Any other suggestions?

  • Hm. Can you riff off of Topo Gigio, which is the first thing I thought of when I saw this word?

  • "Digital fool", from West African dogo, "fool" and digi- "digital"; analogous to Motley Fool, the American investment advisers, using "fool" in the sense of "jester".

    Or more simply: do go digi(tal).
