..the tale of the hoodie..



Today I was asked the question, "Do you like your name?". Which is not really odd. It is normal for anyone to question themselves of anything. Once, I thought about the same question too, but since I dont really get into much trouble with my name, I just brush it off. My full name is Mohd Naqqib bin Mohammed Saffari. Mohd, which is short form for Muhammad, is the name of our prophet, is Arabic and means "praiseworthy". I think these days babies are not allowed to be named "Mohd" anymore, I dont really know why. Perhaps because non-Malaysian people dont really know how to correctly pronounce that short-form name. I think that is a good measure though. In Russia, my lecturers kept calling me "Mohd, Mohd" without really saying the correct word which is, "Muhammad". But I dont really make a fuss about it.

My other name Naqqib, wasnt even supposed to be spelled this way. It was supposed to be with one letter of "Q" only, but what the heck. Atleast I'm different than other Naqibs. Due to my godawful handwritings, back when I was at school, teachers sometimes call me "Naggib" or "Najjib". From my handwritings then, I knew what future profession I would be =p . My family calls me Aqib. I dont really know where that came from. So it got stuck. Not many people know about this. Except you readers now I guess =p .

Naqib

As obvious as it is, its Arabic.

Meaning: Chief. Lawyer.

Comments: I guess my parents right now are disappointed with me because I'm too damn shy. I'm not really a leader, maybe only once got elected as class monitor, a couple of years as a prefect. Lawyer? You're getting a laugh. I hate public speaking. I stutter in front of an audience. I never give speeches. Tough luck.

Soul Urge: People with the name Naqib have a deep inner desire to use their abilities in leadership, and to have personal independence. They would rather focus on large, important issues, and delegate the details.

Comments:Personal independence yes, but leadership maybe not. But indeed I always like to omit the pesty small things and rather tackle on big problems.

Expression: People with the name Naqib are excellent at analyzing, understanding, and learning. They tend to be mystics, philosophers, scholars, and teachers. Because they live so much in the mind, they tend to be quiet and introspective, and are usually introverts. When presented with issues, they will see the larger picture. Their solitary thoughtfulness and analysis of people and world events may make them seem aloof, and sometimes even melancholy.

Comments:Bullshit. I'm a bad teacher. Ask my sister. Thoughtfullness? Well I do like to sit alone and stare outside the window, ignoring all the craps around me.


Since I came from a normal family with Malay and Jawa roots, I have just a simplistic name. I dont have Royalty names like Raja, Tengku or Megat. I dont have noble names like Che, Wan, Tuan, Syed, Sheikh, Nik or anything. My name is just Mohd Naqqib. And whenever I google my name, the name that pops out is only mine. Which mean that I'm the only one in the whole wide world to have it. Yay! =D

There you have it. I like my name as it is.
