Another "Looi" to add to your collection! I'm from Australia.
My surname originated from "Loi" - I was born in Malaysia. But my grandfather had 8 children and couldn't spell using the english alphabet. Thus everytime he wnet down to the birth registry to name his new child, he spelt the surname incorecctly - thus we have Looi, Loi, Loui and several other surnames - all brothers & sisters.
This is true, btw.

: Any Loois out there, please response. We should form a club, maybe. Anyone with the surname "Looi" (means 'thunder') please feel free to email me. We can compile a list of all the Loois in this world.
: Thanks. And thank you, Simon for taking the first step.
