Kafea is coffee shop in Davvisámegiella or North Sámi. I chose it because that is the best place to hang out with cool people, or linger over studies.

I like to cook and eat my nickname!


baun - bean (Icelandic)
According to a dictionary it's allowed to say 'ekki baun!' for 'not at all', as in 'not a bean, old chap!'. If that's not a reason to question solely dictionary use I don't know what is.

सेम (sem) - bean (Hindi)

My nickname is my name, and I think Paul means modest in Latin. I hope Lambeth derives from lamb.

Paul in Icelandic is Páll (formally - pronounced p-ow-tl) or Palli (informally, pronounced as written).

I am registered as 'ember' in a few other communities and forums, and in Russian-
speaking ones, they often try to call me 'янтарь' ('Amber' in Russian), which is a
completely different word.
So I have to explain, which is not easy since Russian does not have a single word for

but I don't use it, my nickname was originally clumsy arashiyama, because i have found such a joint of words, and no any epecific reason.

in Chinese, and Korean I use my Asian name 夏雨
it was given my by one girl.
there is also another nickname,紫月 given by another Chinese girl (from Inner Mongolia)
but I resigned from it, as people said it sound silly (purple moon).

My nickname is my name (first two initials and surname). It's going to be the same in any language. Basically. Except...

It could be this in Russian:ЮДМонкада

The D in Moncada in authentic Spanish (it's a Mexican name in my case) is pronounced as a voiced TH. I don't know that Russian or Japanese has that. I also figured out how ti write my name in Hiragana last week.

Here you are

My nickname is the Bengali way of pronouncing my first name, Harshad.
In Sanskrit "Harsha" = Happiness and "Da" = Giver. (Although North Indians generally drop
the final "a" from Sanskrit words. So Harshada becomes Harshad. And all Sanskrit 'a's are
pronounced as 'o's in Bengali. Hence, Horshod.)
