Enjoy your vacation! And maybe this upupa would fit nicely:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/L%27Upupa_und_der_Triumph_der_Sohnesliebe
Upupa. That's hilarious! How should I pronounce it?
ἔποψ (Classical Greek) is rather nice, too.
L'oo:poopa, I think it is kind of onomatopoeic as there's a little resemblance in the English, Italian and Greek (also demotic Greek) expressions. The German word is earthbound: der Wiedehopf (vee:dehopf)Henze's opera is wonderful.
