The Chosen Ones...



Choosing a name for your unborn/newborn baby is something fun to do. It can shows the creative side you, besides given you the knowledge/history behind names.


I still remembered the first time I got pregnant, me and Fadzil were sooo excited to choose the name for our first baby. As soon as we knew the gender, we started to search for the perfect name. The main criteria that we're looking into were:

i) Arabic names with good meanings sebab bila panggilan nama tu nanti part of doa, kan :). Seboleh-bolehnya, nama pendek yang tak perlu dipendekkan supaya makna nama tu tak lari...

ii) Having the "F" & "N" initials.. itu wajib hihi :P

I list out all the potential names and together with Fadzil we shortlisted the final two and chose "the one" together. The chosen name has been decided as early as 5th months of pregnancy - Muhammad Faaz Naqi which means, "Praiseworthy, Victorious, Pure". Since then, we started to call our unborn baby by the name of "FAAZ". And the day he was born, when Fadzil was about to recite the beautiful Azan to his ear, Faaz opened his eyes widely the minute Fadzil said, "Assalamualaikum, Faaz.." :)



Things were different when it comes to the 2nd pregnancy. We only start searching for the names seriously when I was in my last trimester. This time around, we split the task, Fadzil to find the perfect names that started with the "F" initial while I took the honour to find the names with the "N" initial. It wasn't easy tho, as we weren't sure wheather to give totally different name to the twins or giving rhyming name. And when we finally decided, we're having a hard time to decide who shall have the first name and who shall have the second name..hihi. It was only in the last few hours before I went to the Operation Theater that me and Fadzil finally decided, "Hey, this is it!" :)


And....



The Chosen Names for our little darlings are...




"Tanaaaaaa!" (Faaz way of saying Tadaaaaa! hihi...)



Faiqa means : excellent, outstanding
Nayra means: shining, glittering

"yang cemerlang, bercahaya dan bersinar-sinar"

&


Falisya means : happiness
Nayla means: winner, achiever

"kegembiraan, kemenangan"

:)

Beautiful names for beautiful girls! Comel je diaorg dua tido camtu.

Nadine said...

Izu,

Hihi, panggil mana2 pun boleh dear. Fadzil n his family panggil Faiqa & Falisya. Nadia tukar2.. :)

Yeszaaa! Trademark ittuew WAJIB ade. Hik!

Thanks dear, will do it shortly ;)

Nadine said...

Rushda,

Thank you, yours are beautiful too :)
ps: I love names with "Q". Qays sounds masculine. What's the meaning behind their names?

Nadine said...

Irra,

Agreed. Mmg susah ok nak cari nama starts from "F". Lagi2 kalau boys tau sbb blah Fadzil ramai sgt cousins dia yg nama starts with "F". Sbb itu Nadia volunteer cari yg starts with "N". Hehe..

p.s: hihi, mana2 nak panggil pun boleh dear, asalkan panggilan tu ade makna ;)

Nadine said...

Mea,

Alhamdulillah, thank you dear for ur kind words. Tula, haritu takde rezeki nak jumpa ye. Faiqa & Falisya pun tak sabar nak jumpa aunty fashionista yg sorang nie ;)
Hihi, mana2 pun boleh dear..

Tak dear, they are fraternal twins (kembar tak seiras) because they were in saperate sacks. Tapi, I agreed with u, they did look alike at this stage. But actually, if u look at them closely, then u can differ them easily. Hint yer, Faiqa is bigger in size, muka bujur sireh, n dahi luas sket compared to Falisya. Falisya small in size tp muka bulat. Falisya did look alike Faaz a lot when he was at their age! ;)

Nadine said...

Aqilah,

TQ :) glad u like the names that we chose :)

*****************************

Ninie,

Nayra & Nayla say hie to u too! :) Hihi thanks. Pening pala gakla nak cari the combinations. :D

Nadine said...

*************************

Mas,

Amacam, haritu datang boleh bezakan tak? Hihi. Ko tau, actually mula2 tu bkn Fadzil yg asik tertukar tau, tp aku ni haaa. Jadi zombie punye pasal sampai asik tertukar je. mmg kelakar la kadang2 bila masing2 kata diri sendiri yg betul :P

Nadine said...

Didie,

Ic, hihi. Kitaorg nasibla both parents leave it to us to give their names. Diaorg mmg tak masuk campur pasal nama cucu2 ni..senang sket. :)

Alhamdulillah, Abam Faaz saaayang sgt2 kat adik2 dia. Very protective! Mmg boleh jadi bodyguard yg baik utk adik2 dia. Nanti I'll share about him becoming an abg. :)

k dear, will do. hugs to Adam n Ryan!! :)

Nadine said...

Zura,

TQ, we glad u like the name as well. Berdebar2? hihi, kelakar la Zura ni. Tp betulla Zura, masa nak cari nama tu sgt blur ok dahla kena cari dua nama. tu yg last minute br dapat..hihi.

panggil mana2 pun boleh dear. tp most ppl panggil Faiqa & Falisya :)

cemana nak bezakan ye, cuba Zura baca comment Nadia pada Nuurill. Mcm tu la kitaorg bezakan diaorg so far dr segi fizikal. kalau dr segi perangai, tu nanti kita cite dlm blog later ;)
