I name my dog "Pika". This means DOT. It is a common name for dog. I can't use that name because it write that it is not appropriate or is inadequate.

  • If you Google search "pika slang", you will see that there are two slang meanings sadly. I had never heard of these myself, but the slang meanings are offensive. Sorry.

    He says pika not pika-slang,( whatever that is) my google gives an internetcable, not an offensive thing.

    depends on the language you use google?

  • Hiya. :)

    There's a word "hidden" in pika which is a bad word in Danish, that's why it won't work for the dog, ttt34. :(

    The filters in-game seem silly at times since a lot of the words only are unacceptable in one language, while the filter won't accept them in all languages available. I believe there's a list of words that won't work but should work on the English live forum. Noddy.

    I can't believe what this word means in foreign languages. No wonder it was banned. In our country this is a pet name for a dog. There is also a girl's name.

    Pippi Longstocking (Swedish Pippi Långstrump) is the protagonist in the eponymous series of children's books by Swedish author Astrid Lindgren. In our language this is Pika Nogavička.
