What's In The Name








Proper names are poetry in the raw, said the W.H. Auden. "Like all poetry, they are untranslatable." Mapping your name onto yourself is a tricky procedure indeed. We exist wholly independently of our names, yet they alone represent us on our birth certificates and gravestones.

Would a Rose by any other name be just as sweet-tempered? Does Orion feel cosmically special? Psychologists, parents and the world's Oceans, Zanes and Timothys are divided on the extent to which first names actually matter.

well, i was curious about my name too..i did asked my mom when i was small...why she named me "Norwaliza"...she smiled, patted my head and told me ..because i was their first born so they wanted to make it special.. thus combining their name together would be a great idea that time...'Wa' stand for my dad's and 'Za' stand for my mom's ...both was their first two alphabets.... hmmmm...very touchy....thanks for naming me such a unique and beautiful name...

most people..regarding new or old friends..will call me Liza but... when i went to boarding school at the age of 12, my friends or my clique decided' Liza' was too common then..after few meetings and head banging brainstorming sesions..we agreed on 'Waliz'...hmmm and i fell in love with the name instantly...till now my friends from old school call me Waliz...Nazli,Terq, Claudie...thanks!

Out of curiosity, i decided to type my name in google search and i found out there was a factory in Australia named WalizNuts which claimed "We are one of the very few growers worldwide that produce and process
our own macadamia nuts on our family plantations in the Cape Byron
Hinterland of Australia. Waliz Nuts have been producing macadamia
nuts of the highest grade since 1989." hmmm dont laugh guys...atleast i have my own macademia nuts factory...hehehe

Then i try to find out what's my monster name..here it is..




Your Monster Profile



Iron Vampire



You Feast On: Tofu



You Lurk Around In: Closets



You Especially Like to Torment: Priests



Then finally ..what's my foreign names in this following countries :-

United Kingdom = Azurine McDonald ( i like this best..)
USA = Jody Schmidt
Arab Saudi = Hunaidah Jamil
Japan = Kikumi Yamamoto
India = Brinda Jain
France = Tiffney Thomas

Hmmm.... not a bad name after all....so if an Iron Vampire comes lurking in your blog..dont be surprise..it's me...! i just wanna say helloooooo....! and unfortunately for me...i'm a vegetarian monster eating solely on tofu and errrr... priests!!..so you will be safe..dont worry..hahaha!

Hi Waliz, I love your name, firstly its so original, secondly it sounds nice, and thirdly it matches your gorgeous looks.
Wow! This is one of the most interesting posts I've come across. You are very eloquent and sentimental same time.
You are the kind of lady if I was 35 years younger, will release my handbrake,
'Hendak buah si manggis hutan,
Masak ranum tergantung tinggi.
Kalau tuan pergi ke bendang,
jangan petik buah rumbia,
Tuan laksana bulan yang terang,
Cahaya liput serata dunia'

Waliz, you have a nice evening. UL.
ps, ada senang come for coffee, have replied your comment, looking for a smile from you. Lee.

Rolando said...

When your business booms in 2008, don't forget your lowly friends of the blogosphere.

But I was really curious about your name. Now I know :) I think the character of a name is very important.

lol. I can't take you to the mall right now as i am still waiting for my dad upgrade my credit card limit. *sigh*. i really hope he will find time to do it before new year. if he manage to do so, i will definitely buy you a gift instead of just lurking around shopping malls. all my girlfriends would be jealous. :DD

Rolando said...

Funny thing is that I never met the cousin I was named after. He's in my dad's hometown, you're right and I've never been back home, lol. Some day :)

My monster name is too embarrassing. It's not cool like yours :)

I name has gotten shorter over the years. It went from Rolando to Row to now just Ro, lol.
