ESL Discussions

 

This question is similar to my previous discussion, but this is actually a way to know more about our different cultures and languages: Let's share our favorite names from different countries replying this:

What name would you like to have if you were from:

- Spain (or any other spanish language country)
- Germany
- France
- USA/UK/AU (or any other english language country)
- Russia
- Japan
- Turkey
- Egypt (or any other arabic language country)
- Italy
- Other country you like

Note to those who might take things too seriously: Just share the names you like from any of these countries/languages... no need to consider to change your name and nationality for real! :P XD


My choices:
Spain - Julia or Alba
Germany - Jenell or Ingrid
France - Ivette or Jolie
USA/UK/AU or any other english language country - Mary -- i'm already used to it :P
Russia - Masha :P
Japan - Hiyori or Setsuko
Turkey - Sanem
Egypt (or any other arabic language country) - Alima or Zaira
Italy - Giulia or Mariella :P
-Other country: Any Swahili language country - Aiysha or Nalah

Note: I've picked most of these names just because I like how they sound to my 'spanish ear'; and few others also because of its meaning.

    • Hi, Estanis. Those German names, I know only for old men. You deserve a modern one. Many of the old names came back...but not those you have chosen.

       

      • Psst... Rose... *whispering* ...Estanis is a quite odd guy... just leave him alone with his weird things and nod your head like this:

        :X

        • Can you specify odd?

          • ugh, you read what I "whispered"...

            giphy.webp?profile=RESIZE_710x

          I am in the middle...))))))))))))))))))

        • Haha, MARY, I will consider this next time

           

      • Actually I read they were popular in the war age. I chose Manfred because that was the name of a german person I knew long time ago while he lived in my town.  He opened a successful business, a gym and a bar side by side lol...

    • Uhm, yeah... these spanish names would be nice for you too.

      But Lincoln? mmm..... why not Ulysses S. or Martin Luther?, or Alexander Graham?, or Sir Isaac?... or Jesus!? :D 

      I see you like Oleg more than Olgo XD
