10 Things People With Very Common Names Will Understand

SHARE

Are you a Sidrah, Ayesha, Sara, Mariam, Ali, Umer, Hassan or Arsalan? Then you would know the struggles of having a common name. Here are the 10 things that people with common names can always relate to!

1) People give you offensive nicknames

They know you as the tall one or short one. God forbid if you happen to be a little chubby. No one wants to be known as ‘motti or motta’.

2) When you are on the road and you seeĀ a French fries wala, Burger wala or a paan shop named after you

Do you happen to be a Zeeshan?

Taaza Ali Paan, anyone? Beautiful Rose Sara Beauty Parlor, anyone? Tasty Umer Burgers, anyone?

Everyone think it’s hilarious.

3) When the love of your life lists you as ‘other Ali’ in contacts and it hurts so bad

“Why on earth can’t I be the Ali.” Good question, mate.

4) When you want to make a professional email ID, but you simply can’t.

You are always sidddd_007, ayeshaftw_dateofbirth, usman_1000_engineer.

5) In school, when you are reading a story and a character has the same name as yours

Your classmates are like, “Hawwwwww. Look what Hassan did.”

Same goes for movies and TV shows.

6) God forbid if your full name is Amir Khan, Salman Khan or Shahrukh Khan

Now it’s even worse if you are Imran Khan or Fawad Khan.

7) There is always one relative who has the same name as yours

It’s a nice opportunity for parents to compare you with each other.

8) When people with unique names like Zhalay and Faaris arrive and you feel slightly inferior

“I will never be unique.” *sobs*
