A strange question for the Thai people... what does the word 'porn' mean? I saw it everywhere in Thailand...?
And today I saw it on a curry paste box: it said 'porn-coconut'
So I am all confused!
Is it a cooperation or something? Or an area?

Porn is a common Thai female name.
You mentioned seeing the word in a curry paste box:
porn/pon is a noun whose meaning is "powder"
porn-coconut means "coconut powder" or "powdered coconut"
porn is also a verb whose meaning is "to mix" or "to blend"
porn is also a noun that means "fruit". It is usually used as a prefix to the names of fruits that comes from fruit-bearing trees.
porn-la-mai (pon-la-mai) - fruit/fruits (general meaning)
pon-ma-muang (mango fruit)
pon-a-pel (apple fruit)
pon-a-ngoon (grape fruit)
You're right. It's confusing. The word "porn" has a lot of different meanings, and you see it almost everywhere in Thailand. It's just one of the hundreds of Thai words with so many different meanings. That's why Thai Language is very difficult to learn... ha-ha-ha.
The Thai word "ma" has five different meanings:
- to come
I forgot the other two meanings.
The Thai word "mai" also has five different meanings:
- a lot, plenty

U mean porn like in the Thai name Kittiporn or Lottaporn or Pumpaporn? I was told it means blessing from an angel. Yes, porn is a blessing from heaven.

If all of the above people answered got it right the word 'Porn' actually derived from Bali, and it means blessing. Surely, lots of people add this word into their names.
I do cook a lot of curry and use box coconut, but also never come across the one with the name porn. Scan it in and email me, I'm interested.

used as a "suffix" it relates to the essence and reality (almost a verification) of the preceding word, so you can have many different applications. Euro speakers have the problem with it`s usage, a bit tricky, but it is a compliment to the Name (noun), that precedes it.
