Tanga is Tagalog for "stupid" (go ahead, google translate it...you know you want to)...also, "mirho" is Portuguese for "banana sling", so probably should accept that as well.

I keed, I keed.

Mirho is not a Portuguese word. Portuguese simply doesn't have words with "rh".

yea I tried tanga aswell. and not from portugal.. I thought a thong was only underwear not swimwear. (that is also what you get when you google it only images of the underwear and no swimwear. Not disputing that the word thong is indeed used for swimwear though, but apparently definately not the way it is most known.) and I thought speedo was what people called the tiny swimwear (I know, it is a brand, but like aspirin some brands become the name for the product.)

eh. None of the other major south Indian/Dravidian languages of India(Kannada, Malayalam or Telugu) or Sinhalese for that matter are 5 letters long. Neither does the question suggest that it is the *sole* language of the part of the world.
