Someone else on the board recently taught me that it is an animal that is similar to a deer and native of Africa.
Sorry, I forgot who said that, or what thread, but do a search on it and you'll find the answer.
I pronounce it Kay-ma.
And the shirts Charlie made up on HORBA site are great - check it out.

Betty always pronounced it KAAYMAH.

The antelope connection is correct....she had the face of an antelope on the deck of her race boat.

We have a Betty Cook photo collection under the World Champions section on the site.

I have a bunch of Kaama literature. I scanned it and just burned a disc for a guy, if anyone else needs one, let me know.

Ok so is it an animal, location, or state of mind? Personally I always thought it was an acronym for something?

That answers another question....I always wondered what that was supposed to be.
