Thanks for "mining the archives" MrBaliHai ! Much appreciated. Pago Pago is a bit like Nadi in Fiji. In many of the Polynesian languages there is an unwritten nasal "n" sounded before the letters "g" and "d ". There are some very long and convoluted theories for the reasons for this on the internet. Some of them highly dubious involving missionaries running out of letters when printing!
