My Name Is Abrar , And I'm Not A Male !

Yes , I was surprised to find out that at some cultures my name is a male's name !! Why ? How come ? This soft gentle elegant musical name goes for a male ?? I'm not copping with that !

My name is one of the things I'm in love with << not a narcissist whatsoever :p . It means the righteous , the truthful , the chosen people . It's an Islamic name , and it's a pride that it was mentioned in the Qura'an many times :) . I like my name because it's my name .. it's what represents me , and people always said that you're a part of your name , and I want to be named by my name *what*. Besides , not so many people name Abrar .. it's kinda rare :D :D

Although I luv my name so much , there are some stuff I don't like about it . E.g. my name has always caused me many troubles :( as you can see it starts with the first two letters of the alphabet , so I was always at the very top of any names list in my classes  . When I was at school and even now at the university , teachers always shout out my name at first .. grrrr . An other thing is that my name has two R's , and it's sorta difficult to pronounce for those who have a lisp .. it sounds really cute though :p . However , the most shocking of all is what happened when I called a store the other day and the guy at the store .. the staff who answered me really seemed weirdo talking to me especially when he asked about my name to write it down so he can call me back . Then he said Ok BROTHER Abrar ............... !! and I was like what tha ... ? Is this person for real ? ok my name is a male's but does not my voice say something ????????

Anyways , I started to like my name more and more a few days ago when one of my best friends gave birth to such an adorable baby , She named her after me *tearing* saying that she hopes that her baby grows like me .. I was so moved and almost cried ( I'm an emothinal person ) . For Fatooma my friend May Allah protect your baby and grant her health and well-being Ameen .

....it's sorta difficult to pronounce for those who have a lisp .. it sounds really cute though..... shame on you!!!! no , no i am just kidding, but nice name though..to be honest , ya strange one, but still i hope if my name is a unique name , i think it gives you that feeling of uniqueness !

i think i have my experience with names too! as my last name is hard to pronounced , a lot of people got stuck while reading it ! lol ! but still sometimes i enjoy what they call me , now i have list of strange last names !!!
