I’ve never backed down from the need to reform our culture because its laced with such frailties that couldn’t stand up to the scrutiny of our time. In doing so, I’ve been called many degrading names, but I relish all of them because it is very hard to change humans and especially when they view this change to be offensive to what they cherished for generations. I’m not here for a popularity contest, but to express my options without favour or fear. How else could we break such barriers stopping us to reach our potential. As I write this, guys are queuing in my DM, telling me that clan A, B, C mostly use that name. How sad!!!!
Aussie, when will you admit you get a thrill from triggering. I just know you get a rush from this. I know because I had my fun trolling an triggering for a few days and I felt it :whew:. These guys are ticking time bombs waiting to be detonated

Abaayo, facts and trolling are two vastly different things, do facts trigger Somalis, bloody holly oath it does, but it's mainly due to a fake pride.

I am biased towards Faran name. I coined it 20 years ago to describe the male version of "Xaliimo" which I also coined!


Rkelly, a protegee of mine, desires to change the "Farah" to Geeljiire--- but that is a deceiving design, as NOT all Somali men tend to camels. Rkelly is thinking about his Isaaq background. Not all qabils or Somali come from a camel rearing background as Isaaqs or Dhulbanantes

I could have chosen "Abdi" as truly, this name is most popular in all dominion of Somali qabils in Somalia, but Abdi name has a connotation of "Slave" which weak men might compare it to human slavery as opposed to the slave of Allaah swt which was the intended intent.


The Farah suited to my high flaunting vanity & style of drama. It also has a universal thing going on as ALL somali qabils use it, due to the arab connection or obsession attachment as @AussieHustler states
 
Since the name came to us via the Arabs (not via the English) meaning happiness and joy, it is a girl's name and like Abdi (slave), we didn't understood it and voluntarily chosen a feminine name for our men. It is also (rarely) used in England, Wales, Northern Ireland and the United States and mostly given to girls. If you introduce yourself as Farah and strangers smile at you, they think that you are transitioning……..explain to them.

The sugar-coating and revisionism will continue, not a single Somali man will admit that a mistake has been made. Geeljire attitude. Soon, we will hear the spin of Abdi.

@roble

What does it mean in Somali?

Sxb, it is an Arabic word and also a name mostly given to girls that made it's way to Somalia. Let's either be happy with it, or erase it from our culture.

W R O N G...

only the feminine is arabic.[/QUOTE]

@roble

Since all Somali names have Somali meaning and none exists for Farah, it is evident that it is an Arabic name and meant for females. I do understand your outrage because most people who are culturally conservatives would be when told cultural stuff they thought belonged to them isn't theirs. The facts is that this is not only a cultural appropriation, it signifies its ugliest misuse. Let's agree to disagree.

Jump to Meaning - Farah has two origins, Middle Eastern and English. The Middle Eastern name and its variants (Farrah, Ferrah, Fareeha, etc.) are based on the Arabic root ف ر ح (f-r-ḥ), which is the basis of words related to joy (e.g., فَرَح , faraḥ, "happiness, joy, gladness, gleefulness, joyful, joyfulness, merriment, rejoice").
Meaning‎: ‎Happiness, joy
Gender‎: ‎Unisex
Variant form(s)‎: ‎Fareeha
People with the given name · ‎People with the surname · ‎Farah


even in arabic its UNISEX.

What you posted says, it’s a unisex name, are you happy with that definition? Do you think a Somali nomad would’ve given his son a unisex name? If you dig that unisex deeper, then you will realise that it’s a name predominantly given to girls. We should investigate other Somali names too.

Waryaa Farah, how do you feel having a female oops I mean a unisex name? You guys are way too emotional to discuss anything with you. This little factual piece has turned you into little dhoocilos going through with their first periods.
