        well, you better asked the question. Actually it was a mistake and the meaning I provided was wrong and was the meaning was indeed of my sister's name that is Sharmeen. The exact meaning of Saleheen is people who are honest and performs noble work.

            Klara wasn't wrong indeed:Only strong survive here in Bangladesh. . Saleheen can be used synonymously to Shirmeen. And Ira Gardener was perfect with the meaning.

      My real name Is Ira Puspita. It means the guardian of flower. To be honest I am not sure why I should became the guardian of flower hmm but my dad gave me that name over one famous Indonesian Actress around his time. If you google my name, you will find about 1000 link to different people sad so I decided to used gave myself pen name.

      I choose Freya Cesare simply because I think "Freya" sound beautiful name and combined it with Cesare made it unique and easy to link it with me only in this big internet world smile.

        Freya - Ira - so "beautiful woman" is guardian of the flower.  Perhaps, Ira, you have misinterpreted your name.  You are the flower.

    Cool question, Saleheen.  I like that you defined the meaning of your name.  Interesting.   I love the combination of people's names.  Like: Walter Melon  (no kidding, there really is someone out there with that name).

    So, my nickname is Dee.  Grew up with my siblings calling me that and then my close friends. It is more familiar/intimate.  Usually go by Denise at work and with folks who don't know me.

    Thanks for posing the question Shuvo.   smile

      My mom's name is Denise, and lots of her friends call her Dee, too.

      I'm from Philly, and "watermelon" would be pronounced like woodermelon, if you're familiar with the area... So Walter Melon actually sounds totally different to me tongue

      Just sayin.

    Isn't it interesting when a person's name actually FITS their occupation?   

    For example:  I went to my cousins graduation party from medical school and while looking at the class photo came across a person's last name of:  Doctor.    Come on...did he change it to fit the job?    I asked my cousin and he told me that was his real name.

    Paging: Dr. Doctor...Paging: Dr.Doctor

    Aurelia means golden and is pronounced ow-rel-yah, but we just say uh-rill-yuh because we're from Michigan and can't be bothered to pronounce anything that offers a level of diffculty, don'cha'know.

    Elizabeth Judith Patricia Caleca, nickname Lee.

    Elizabeth means 'oath of God', Caleca is Sicilian, means 'little plum', Lee means 'meadow' with a modern meaning 'side of the vessel which faces into the wind'.

    When I was born I had purple eyes.  My mother wanted to name me Amber but didn't because of the purple eyes, which later turned to an amber colored hazel.

    As a Catholic, one was required to name children after a saint and as an Italian, the tradition was to name a child after a grandparent or parent (who would have been named after a saint)

    So I was named after my grandmother, who was called Betty.  When she died, they found out her name was not Elizabeth.  It was Bettina.

    Oddly, my names fit right down to the nickname.  I am always bucking something or 'facing into the wind'.
