Ada Apa Dengan Nama???

In Shakespeare's play Romeo and Juliet, Juliet says (speaking about Romeo, because of the tension between their families),


'Tis but thy name that is my enemy;
Thou art thyself, though not a Montague.
What's Montague? it is nor hand, nor foot,
Nor arm, nor face, nor any other part
Belonging to a man. O, be some other name
!What's in a name? that which we call a rose
By any other name would smell as sweet;


Many people think Shakespeare is revealing the boundaries of the term name here. They think he proposes that a rose would still be a rose; in other words, the name does not matter. They also think, at the same time he is showing us the importance of names, as for one thing - the names are what the plot is about. Most commentators argue that what Shakespeare is really trying to say is, "I could love you if your last name was not what it is."



thinking bout telling u guys my full name so there will not be any confusion y some pple calling me shieda, while the others atun...



to begin with.... i was born on the 9th zulhijjah, so basically just for everyone not to forget the connection between me n Raya Haji celebration, to put Adha in my name is a must...... n so my parents decided to name me "Shahidatul Adha".... lot of pple n ustazs been trying to translate my name... some said korban yg menyelerakan, while some said penyaksi pengorbanan... i jz don care what the meaning is cz i knew as a matter of fact it is a lovely good name...



because it is such a long name ( a bit la), different pple call me by different nick.... mak used to call me shasha... my sis n bros called me dik da.... my adek call me kak ida.... when i entered Tadika, my teacher started calling me Datun, n i hate this nick actually, so i asked my frens to call me atun..... there were few frens who prefer to call me Ad or Adha... but nama atun lebih sebati n kekal sampai abis sec.school... afta that i went to matrics Kolej Mara Seremban for about 3months n here bcz there are 5 pple oso called atun, one of my fren suggested that i change my nick... i thnx Saadah for suggesting the nick Shieda bcz i think this name presents me as a grown up, mature girl...



so guys... whether it is shieda, ida, atun, n wutsoever pple might be calling me.... i am always the same person... maybe i changed a bit or maybe a lot in my appearance, but all these changes do not change the real me at all....

3 love:
