French term or phrase: Koh Bo Choh
Having a bit of difficulty being creative here for names, this is for an egyptian themed game and I need to come up with creative english equivalents of characters, I just can't think of any for this one

Koh Bo Choh

(hes supposed to be a merchant)

Has to be american English, thought of something along the lines of Pops, but not really getting there, maybe too slangy, its for a wide audience

Al I Pad
Explanation:
I checked out Kobo on Google and it seems to be a brand of pad device, hence the use of "I Pad". I'm sure somebody will come up with something better because I'm not sure this is terribly "Egyptian" but maybe it will give you a start.

agree  Yolanda Broad: Looks pretty clever to me! (but maybe more "modern" Egyptian than ancient).
