‘Repulse’ by definition means to drive back or attack by force. How come a lovely and calm bay is named after such an aggressive term?
Answer: Back in 1841, the bay was taken over by pirates and they lived there. It is a perfect spot where they can easily steal things from ships passing by.
Now, to protect the ships from being hijacked, the British Fleet attacked or repulsed the pirates and their base in the bay.
The British Fleet won and the name stuck—that is why Repulse Bay, Hong Kong, is called Repulse Bay!
