Oooo, thanks for that Dizzy.

But, then don't forget older girls often have false teeth.

Well, I have registered just to answer this topic: I am spanish (and as far as I know "AMIGA" is a spanish word), and situation here is VERY strange:
AMIGA means "female friend", and not "girlfriend" (unless you have sex with your female friends, wich is the best you can do if they allow you to): BUT here's the tricky part: here in spain, Amiga fans DON'T CALL IT "LA AMIGA", but "EL AMIGA" (as we consider the AMIGA a computer, "ordenador" here, and "ordenadores" are MALE).
So, for us spaniards, it's MALE, "el Amiga". For example we would say "ŋTe vas a traer el Amiga?" wich means "Are you bringing your Amiga along?".
Thats for SPAIN, in Europe.
In south america however, spanish is VERY different, and they tend to make silly-sounding translations like "LA AMIGA" or "LA MSX", wich are indeed painfull for spanish ears. For them, the Amiga is female...well, everything is female for those guys if you ask me: they translate "low pass filter" as "filtro paso baja", so go figure...

Welcome to EAB, vanfanel.

Very interesting...here in Germany computers are male as well.
But we call the Amiga "DIE Freundin" (female).
When it comes to ordenadores again, itīs "DER Amiga" (male).


: Wo ist der Amiga? Where is the Amiga?

: Die Freundin ist auf dem Dachboden! The Amiga (female friend / girlfriend) is in the attic!


I stop now, this is going to be a lesson...

I never did understand the whole masculine/feminine side of other languages.

For myself the Amiga is female.

@Dastardly: Yeah, just a point of view !

This is perfectly what I think about Amiga. But this is my personal opinion. I can't confirm about all italian language since you always find written "L'Amiga" and it can be either male (Lo Amiga) or female (La Amiga).

Only an italian dictionary will solve mistery, obviously when Amiga will come back for future

Unfortunately all Turkish varieties are genderless languages. And I can't think of a computer or Amiga as a female or male.

I remember reading the supposedly original story which said "spanish for girlfreind". Regardless of whether a) the story was true and b) Amiga actually means that

I think the same article also went on about the origins of "Rock Lobster" and "Guru Meditation".. maybe even wikipedia..
