My Name in Arabic - zlythern
If you ever curious about how is your name in Arabic looks like, then Reem from My Name in Arabic, is the right person to do the job ;) Ever since May 2007 Reem have made lotsa Arabic name for peoples ;)

Efendi in Arabic
My Name in Arabic
is offering you the service of writing your name in Arabic letters. All you need to do is send Reem an email, write your name, and explain how your name is pronounced. Since the writings will be based on the pronunciation of your name ;)

And Reem, have made me one, a beautiful one ;)

My name is Efendi, and in Arabic is إفندي

Nice eh ;)

And turns out, that Efendi was originated from Turki. Reem pointed me out for this, and here are some quotes from wikipedia.

Effendi or Efendi (from Turkish Efendi) is a Turkish title meaning a lord or master. It is a title of respect or courtesy, equivalent to the English Sir, in Turkey and some other Eastern countries. It follows the personal name, when it is used, and is generally given to members of the learned professions, and to government officials who have no higher rank, such as Bey or Pasha. It may also indicate a definite office, as Hekim efendi, chief physician to the sultan. The possessive form efendim (my master) is used by servants and in formal intercourse.

I never knew that before :P

So, have yourself an Arabic Name ;)

It's so nice for me to have found this blog of yours, it's so interesting. I sure hope and wish that you take courage enough to pay me a visit in my PALAVROSSAVRVS REX!, and plus get some surprise. My blog is also so cool! Don't think for a minute that my invitation is spam and I'm a spammer. I'm only searching for a public that may like or love what I write.

Feel free off course to comment as you wish and remember: don't take it wrong, don't think that this visitation I make is a matter of more audiences for my own blogg. No. It's a matter of making universal, realy universal, all this question of bloggs, all the essential causes that bring us all together by visiting and loving one another.

You must not feel obliged to come and visit me. An invitation is not an intimation. Also know that if you click on one of my ads I'm promised to earn 8 cents for that: I would feel happy if you did click it, but once again you're totaly free to do what ever you want. I, for instance, choose immediatly to click on one of your ads, in case you have them. To do so or not, that's the whole beauty of it all.

I think it's to UNITE MANKIND that we became bloggers! Don't see language as an obstacle but as a challenge (though you can use the translater BabelFish at the bottom of my page!) and think for a minute if I and the rest of the world are not expecting something like a broad cumplicity. Remenber that pictures talk also. Open your heart and come along!!!!!

Efendi eh?
A weird selection of name, from the eyes of a Turkish.

We use efendi while addressing someone like "Ahmet efendi de burada" meaning "Mr. Ahmet too is present"
You see, you can use it as Mr. but it has more respect in it. It's a respectful way of addressing people. It also means "master" like in "Who's your master?"


Anyway, nice to meet you, Efendi.
And there's this site you can have a look, i found it whilst searching for an english to arabic translater.

Have a good day.
