    YES! It‘s been a week since I decided to name myself Sumayya, because my parents gave me a name bad name 20 years ago, although we‘re muslim (alh.) I love my name now and I’m proud. Sadly, everybody calls me Sümeyye, bc that‘s the turkish pronunciation, but that‘s okay. Peace out, to all my name-sisters out there. I now live and inshaAllah will die with this beautiful name and hope to live up and do justice to this name.
