Kkk iggy karbaashe? What a name.


Is it me or do they all look a lot older than their ages, some of them look 40 but their age is 20.

Also can an isse tell me why they seem to have the most unique names. Are these names from afar or are they actually Somali in origin? Neriib?

Some of the Isse have names only unique to them not used by other Somalis due to their
isolation and bordering non Somalis.
