Creative Names

Creativity can be a curse....

Here I was thinking that (over-)creative naming of one's spawn was more of an American/ Hollywood thing...

... but apparently it's fairly prevalent on our shores! For example:
1) Zukri Valenteno Mohd Ali (A Malaysian writer)
2) €” Cyrus Reza (Son of a diplomat)
3) Mohd Hitler Zami (Malaysian TV/ film director) who has a brother named Ahmad Yamashita.

(Source: Mostly from an article in the Star newspaper, written by Encik Valenteno...)

I imagine that it cannot be easy growing up with such unique names*...
... and even when you are all grown up, it may be a bit difficult for people to take you seriously (especially during serious business meetings) when you introduce yourself as Mohd Romeo, or something in that vein.
:)

Anyway, hats off to these individuals.
(*Kids can be so cruel without knowing it - with all the teasing and bullying in primary schools etc.)


Amused but respectful,
J

PS/ HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY! :)
