Halooooom - Bengali for monster

Well technically it the name of a tiger in the Bangladeshi version of sesame street, but in our family it is the name we use for the things that goes bump in the night. Anyways meet my cousin-in-law Vicky. He's a handsome young man right? Well not according to my daughter. We were visiting my husband's aunt and Vicky came down from his room and my daughter burst out in tears. She wouldn't stop crying until he left the room and when we asked her what's wrong, she said "Haloom. " Poor boy he even went and put on a hat but she still cried.
I think she hurt his feelings.
