chiro (CHEE-roh) - n., the ladyfish (Elops saurus). (KAI-roh) - n., (informal) a chiropractor.


The fish is also called skipjack and banana fish. Is edible, but is very bony and not considered prime eating. No origin for this name for the fish -- for the second meaning, it is of course from Greek for hand, with the practic part meaning activity.
