Hector Bolobolo

"I’m going to kill him."
-- interview with Hector Bolobolo, 14 May 2014 (QWC)

Commentary

Etymology

Hector means "holding fast" and comes from Greek ‘εκτωρ (hektor) and εχω (echo) meaning "to hold, to possess". Hector appears in Greek legends as one of the champions of Troy (Behind the Name).

Bolobolo is likely to come from the name of the rare Fijian Bolo snake (Ogmodon vitianus), although the word does mean "thicket" in the language of Madagascar and "duck" in Somali (Wiktionary).
