Some people in Barcelona attract your attention by calling “Éo” There’s a French example of this in Margueritte’s La garçonne (1922). 14yo Monique is being seduced into lesbian shenanigans by her freethinking friend, Elisabeth. Aunt Sylvestre comes looking for them. “Hého!” cries Monique, and the storm passes. The activities of Monique and Elisabeth are wholly unrelated to the chorus of that old song which in some versions goes, “Heyho, away she goes, donkey riding, donkey riding.” You could look for other examples for days and end up none the wiser as to the what/why/where/when.
