2 world wars, 1 world cup

You'd have thought a Kenyan site would know what name to use as surname FFS. First name, surname. It's not hard, but some people don't seem to get it.

I spent ages trying to track down an Indian mate in his new job, only to see he'd decided to register first name and surname the other way round for that company, for no obvious reason (or maybe in our company he had it the wrong way round?). Seemed completely normal to him, like the two are interchangeable as and when needed.

Then there's nicknames. Gomes/Pele

What's the point of names then? Rant over.


Judging by all the comments from our new swathe of Kenyan fans, Ayub Timbe is how he is known. The last name is not necessarily the "surname", it may be his father's name. This can be a way of distinguishing a number of people who have the same family name. (Or indeed, Masika may be his surname, but he is known by his forename, and his mother/father's name - i.e., a matronymic or patronymic system). Like they have in Russia.

With, say, Chinese names. Traditionally, they write the surname first, followed by the forenames. So when you are looking at a Chinese name, you're not going to immediately know if they have swapped their name around, to fit Anglosphere conventions, or not. If in doubt, ask. Or see how they sign off emails.

My father in law is not known by his surname, as it is too common where he lives. He'd be called something like John Mary Joe (John son of Mary, daughter of Joe)
My mother in law is never called her official surname, either her birth name or her married name, except in official documents - she's referred to by her father's family nickname - each "branch" of that surname in the area had its own nickname.

Just because a naming convention doesn't fit your narrow worldview, doesn't mean it's not valid.


Yes it does. I don't know why they couldn't be arsed to have proper names like us. Proper English names so we can understand them. And why they have to speak a different language baffles me too. It's not like English is difficult. Even toddlers manage it FFS.

And don't even get me started on them inventing batshit crazy cultures too just to be different.

EDIT: before my dry 'humour' gets me banned for being a thick racist. Yeah of course you're right. Of interest, my post was initially going to be a complaint about how the media seem not to be able to get their heads around foreign names, and this may be another example if his surname is actually Timbe and I'm reading confusing reports of a Masika, thinking we've signed someone else.

I'm interested to hear what you think bring to the table with your 'dry humour'as it isn't humour and it does make you look thick and bigoted. Which you seem to be unhappy to be identified as.

Nah, very much read it as trying to be funny as sadly falling well short on this occasion

Anyway, I'm getting quite excited about this Timbe chap. More I read about him, the more enthused I am

Oh yeah, I knew it was a totally failed attempt at humour. 2ww1wc has been around for ages. Sadly his contributions of late have been somewhat lame.

From Despair To Where? Don't get started on Icelandic names either when Gudjon Thordarson signed his own son Bjarni Gudjonson for Stoke along with half of Reykjavik.


Hah

I just finished reading "She Stood There Laughing", (a Stoke fan's lament)

Adjusting to the physicality of Championship football maybe an issue. Perhaps a supersub role. 30 minutes of direct running.

He looks tiny.

It might look like he's going really fast but you can probably outpace him walking.

5'7", wow. If we don't mow the grass he might go unnoticed. Not sure if that's allowed though.
