Pinky finger or Little finger?
What's the correct terminology for this finger? I always thought that the term "pinky finger" was slang...should it be moved to Little finger, which I just made a redirect to here from? --pie4all88 20:23, 4 Oct 2004 (UTC)
- The little finger is standard. I have moved this article there. - TAKASUGI Shinji 06:43, 2005 Mar 30 (UTC)
Pinky or Pinkie?
I see the spelling as both "pinky" and "pinkie" in various places. Anyone know any information behind the "correct" one? Stexe 07:26, 30 January 2007 (UTC)
This story didn't make sense to me, but i'm not familiar with the story, so perhaps someone else can better edit it:
In Korea, The story goes: A princess chooses her prince to be wed, when asked what finger she was holding out. She must find a Prince to unite Pinkys for their matrimony. After the Princess had gotten married with this prince, he later parted ways for war and he'd made a pinky promise for his return. On the 49th day after his disappearance, he came back, but only to realize he came back as a ghost. As the prince kept his promise, even after death.

A Few Things About the 'Pinkie'
I figured there are two things that should be put on this: 1.) The pinkie in Japan is the finger that lovers are connected by by 'the read string of fate'. 2.) I'm not sure if this is just a child's rumor or what, but I am 90% sure that in some countries(including parts of Japan), the pinkie finger is equivilent to the middle finger. —Preceding unsigned comment added by StartheVocaloid (talk • contribs) 00:19, 11 December 2009 (UTC)
