Pang is a prefix name, used in Thailand for female elephants.

Owner: Sommai Salangam, Surin.

It was raining heavily while Pang Gaewta was in labor, so we named the baby Saifon [falling rain] because the moment she was born the rain stopped, Mr Sommai said.

Contradictory records:
Oter sources claim that her name is Tong Yip (source)
