I've a seriously weird quirk . If I meet someone who has a good name , I would ALWAYS ask them what does it mean . In other case , I'm obsessed with names , it should make sense.
My birth name wasn't Noor , it was something started with "E" (that I now think , is EVEN stylish) . Probably my stylish-ness wasn't really going on with that E so my parents rushed to change it . If you believe in astronomy and stuff like that , you probably know that name effect one's personality . Plus E name didn't suit me and I was a baby who would be sick all the time , so my waaaaanderful family decided to change it. Boom boom , my name's train was on a reverse track , everybody wanted to name me . How popular I was as a 2 month oldie.
Before that , me and my twin sister aka Areeba were named Baby A and Baby B . Areeba's older one by 10 minutes so she was the Baby A (and even got a name with A afterwards) and me being younger , got the Baby B title . Well , I am glad that system didn't work like school examination marking system .
So , in that astronomy game , they picked N for me . Believe me , I think N letter has some really worst names but I ended up with a nicer one , Noor Un Nahar . Which means day light . While only Noor means light.
So Baby B upgraded to E , then crawled towards N , where it ended up on N-U-N ! I will always be proud that I have a monogrammed-suitable name . Shucks , I need to have a monogram soon.
So after a big ol' sweet sixteen , I've got a few nicknames . People close to me call me Noori , I love the way it sounds . Areeba calls me Nu-Nu , that's an occassional one though . Even in blogland , Haley called me Boots, that's because of her auto-correct .
I would love to tell anyone who would ask what does my name mean , but I've had some worst cases too!
The last part of my name , which is Nahar . Rhymes with Nihar which means Camel in some language (ps : I still haven't figured out in which one I am being called a.....camel?) The long story short , my school ID card got a misspelling and made it Nihar instead of Nahar . A lady visitor asked me if that really meant Camel with my name . I WAS NEAR TEARS! I just rushed to school office to have it corrected . Sigh.
So this is my not-so-usual name story . I think a four-alphabet name is really cute but I secretly want that E name , in my wildest dreams .
What's your name story?
////////////////Hi, I'm Karly & this is my dog Hufflepuff. We blog over at Karly Kim. I do most of the writing, but he helps with visuals. I hope you enjoy getting to know a little bit about me.
