The name 'Perlmonks' is a portmanteau word that combines 'Perl' with 'monks'; monks are religious followers who live together in a monastery. Thus, members of this website sometimes refer to each other as monks -- a description that is more metaphorical and less literal.

In English, the ending 'y', 'ie' or 'ee' (all homonyms) are added to the end of nouns to make them cuter, and may also refer to a smaller version of the original. Thus, you might have a dog (perhaps full-grown), and also a doggy (perhaps a younger dog). They could also be described as a pup and a puppy (this isn't such a good example -- pup usually means a young dog in any case).

Taking those two paragraphs as a starting point, from 'monk' you could get 'monkee', which might mean a younger monk, or a cute name for the regulars of this community.

You're right that Google told you The Monkees were a pop band back in the 60's and 70's -- this is a typical American mis-spelling to catch the eye, and is also a play on the band that they were copying, The Beatles (see: beetles -> beatles, because they played music with a beat). Another example of an intentional mis-spelling is 'tonite', a simplification of 'tonight' that's also fewer letters, so can be made from larger letters on a sign. The English word night may be descended from the German word for the same thing, nacht, but nite is a homonym, so can be used in place of night. (OK, the British may squirm -- whatever.)

Heh. Language is fun.

    Wow! Many thanks for your detailed answer! Learning language is really a interesting process, and Perl is absolutely the most like human language in areas of computer science. Thanks!
