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
