Bonza sheila is a well known though rather archaic Australian slang term to describe a desirable and attractive lady; being called a bonza sheila a compliment!... Someone very dear to me, an Australian, dubbed me Bonza Sheila several years ago. I was absolutely delighted with the appellation, so when I decided to create a website and started searching for a good domain name, I was very surprised that was available. It's not easy to get a top level .com domain that is such a well known phrase, as well as being catchy, interesting, and easy to remember. It was perfect! I immediately purchased the domain, and thus came to be.
