I know most Thai nicknames have some sort of meaning or significance, does the word "Porn" as a name mean anything ? I've read a few lists on the web, but none mention this name.

Porn is usually a shortened form of a girl's full name -- such as Pornthip, Pornsuwan, Pornwilai, Ouayporn etc.

What's it mean? "porn" is a blessing.

"Porn" was the name of the girl who's pic never showed up when I viewed a bars roster using the internet at work...

If I googled "Porn" in Bangkok, I bet it would be blocked! :)

It must be difficult for a westerner to introduce his girlfriend from Thailand to his friends and family and tell them her name is Porn!
"Guess that I was born to be a rover.
Guess I've always been a rolling stone.
But someday when my rolling days are over.
I will find a place to call my own.
'Cause even the lone stars they get lonesome.
Lonesome as the lost ship on the sea.
Even the lone stars they get lonesome.
Lonesome for a lone star man like me."

Not in the UK. Mother-in-law would probably get the ping-pong balls out.

Peter takes his girlfriend Porn to meet his old pal Bob.

Peter: "Hi Bob, I'd like you to meet my girlfriend, Khun Porn."
Bob: "Hi, nice to meet you, but didn't quite catch your name?"
Peter: "Her name's Khun Porn, but just call her Porn."
Bob: "Porn." "And she's from Bangkok." (stifled laugh)
Peter: "Sorry Bob, did I say something funny?"
Bob: "No Peter, no, just something tickling my throat."
Peter: "OK Porn, let's go shopping."

They walk off down the street.

Bob:  :rotl:  :rotfl:

Peter's fiancee has finally arrived and he takes her round to his parent's house.
'Hi mum. This is Porn.'
'Oh how lovely dear. I'll see if I can find the old strap-on.'

Too much 'Little Britain.'  :)

It does swing both ways of course.
Taking my friend Charles around beer-bars often
elicited laughter from the girls when I told them he was called by the name "Chuck". To the girls ears this was "chok wow" and they would burst into giggles.
He and I were both curious why. A bar girl with limited English made a vague gesture to explain from behind the bar, her hand with curled fingers moved from in front of her with an over the shoulder motion. I sais to Chuck "your name means masturbator". He decided my limited Thai was confused and it was obvious that his name meant "Archer", so in the end it was all good, and I spent the next month cruising the beer-bars of Thailand with the Archer
