Coco doesn't mean help in Spanish. It means coconut.

Note to the moderator:
Tookie is hebrew for parrot. I believe that it is also Aramaic as well. It just sounds better then Old English for someone's bum. It is a shame to take a real word (and an adorable name) and assign it the least nicest meaning. I know many mid-eastern people who name their parrot Tookie because it means parrot. It would be kind of you to research and modify this. Thanks!
