Not all names are equal

Updated : August 8, 2019

  • Some names are rare [at least among sayas and alumni].
  • Some names are common and need to have “meta data” for minimizing or removing ambiguity.
  • For example, there are several alumni named Aung Myint, Soe Win, and Han Sein

Aung Myint

  • U Aung Myint (M67) recently passed away.
  • U Aung Myint (M69) taught at RIT and Singapore Poly.
  • U Aung Myint (Pet69) taught at RIT and is known for his cartoons (notably Kyant Ba Hone).
  • U Aung Myint (Min70) is an actor, guitarist and vocalist. He is also known as “Thamankyar Ko Myint”.
  • U Aung Myint, who hails from the “Yogi Thway Say” family and also operates a recording studio (initially for his spouse : vocalist Phyu Thi).
