    I’m not into manicures, but I always appreciate an economical, apt word.  “Squoval” speaks well in two syllables, better than “ovalare”; “ovaquare”; or, eupuistically, “ovalosquare” (oh VEL uh square).

  2. I agree! It’s euphonic: “sqwoh-vuhl” sounds like an alcoholic drink made with Bovril. Or a type of gunpowder intended for squirrel-hunting.
