    Bint al balad aka Hannah
    I like the name Hannah - presumably you and your family pronounce it the Arabic way? Imo, it's one of the few names that sound good pronounced in both English and Arabic.

    Agreed. Only my mum's family say it the Arab way but it's very similar to the English version

    Yeah, I like my double name indeed. It sounds so roman, like roman.

    I like my name and the spelling of it. Not as fond of what is referred to as the "normal" spelling tbh, even if I do get the odd comment. It isn't spelt in some big obscure way btw, if anything I know more people with my spelling than the other.

    Aside from the fact no white person can pronounce it properly (), I quite like it. Plus my granddad chose it so it has some sentimental value I guess

    This tbh. No-one apart from my parents pronounces it close to the original Arabic, but I identify myself as - and prefer to be called - Hashim (Hash to rhyme with mash, im to rhyme with him). It's incredibly-simple to pronounce, even for an uncultured white person, but virtually every non-Asian person that I've ever known feels the need to add some level of exoticness where there isn't one, by pronouncing it Hasheem. Just. :unimpressed:

    It's common enough that everybody knows it and has absolutely no issues saying it, but it was popular about 10-20 years before I was born, so I rarely meet people my own age with the same name. Only downside really is that it's quite ordinary and, when paired with my very common surname, doesn't do a great deal for me in terms of individuality.
