Aka’s a commie!

There are a few different meanings for my chosen name. There’s the pretty standard also known as” which I suspect everyone knows. There’s also the “Alpha Kappa Alpha“, the United States’ first sorority for African-American women. Then there’s others I found out via anime, such as it’s meaning in Japanese as Red (赤), or Aka-chan (赤ちゃん) which means baby.

However there were additional meanings in Japanese I was unaware of. One of these meanings is equator, which kinda sounds boring. The next I found out was Communist, Aka means Communist in Japanese. I’m not sure if this is a slang term for it or because the Communist flag was red, but I found it quite hilarious regardless.

None of these meanings are the birth of my name though, it’s just been an evolution over time.
