Name Change

Originally, the group's name, Hei Se Hui Mei Mei, is a pun on the words "Mei Mei" (CJKV|t=妹妹|l=sisters; little girls) and "Hei Se Hui" (CJKV|t=黑社會|l=black society; triad). Later, after the group's move to Warner Music Taiwan, its name was changed to 黑Girl, and the English name officially became Hey Girl. The change in name resulted from the record company's concerns that scandulous rumors of other members of the show Wo Ai Hei Se Hui would be associated with Hei Se Hui Mei Mei (Hey Girl).
