By all these lovely tokens
September days are here,
With summer’s best of weather
And autumn’s best of cheer.

Helen Hunt Jackson - September
The breezes taste
Of apple peel.
The air is full
Of smells to feel-
Ripe fruit, old footballs,
Burning brush,
New books, erasers,
Chalk, and such.
The bee, his hive,
Well-honeyed hum,
And Mother cuts
Like plates washed clean
With suds, the days
Are polished with
A morning haze.

John Updike, September

i will share the meaning of my name and ask for yours.

"Mohit" is my name and "singh" is my surname
this name is only popular in india i think
"Mohit" is a hindi word.
the english meaning of my name is "fascinating" or some one who can attract .

    @Khalied - Zom Gabu comes from creatures called Shadoks from another planet. In their language there are only 4 syllables GA, BU, ZO, MEU and it's enough for them to communicate with each other.
    Zom Gabu <--> GA BU ZO MEU, it's where my full name comes from. ;)

    @mohit_singh Mary was the mother of Jesus and Anne was the mother of Mary. Marianne is how the name is spelt in France but there are English derivations - Marion and Marian. The Americans are more likely to write it Mary-Anne. So my first name is indeed a Christian name!

    On the other hand, the name Heredge is Anglo Saxon and I'm told means 'eagle's ledge.'
  • mohit_singhmohit_singh Posts: 2,175 ✭✭✭✭
    i think your name gives some aesthetic meaning.@mheredge
  • mohit_singhmohit_singh Posts: 2,175 ✭✭✭✭
    Is it true? @Zom . only four word for communication. GA, BU, ZO, MEU.its like bizarre!
  • ZomZom Shadok Posts: 2,800 ✭✭✭✭✭✭
    It's true @mohit_singh. Only Claude Pieplu who used to be the official Shadoks' translator could understand them and translate everything the Shadoks said to French.

    you said that shadoks is a the planet.so the people (claude pieplu) are alien for us.
    is it a mythological story? because i know that up to now alien exist only in movie.
    but i must say your name is so small and funky.i love it.

    @mohit_singh - The Shadoks came from the imagination of Jacques Rouxel. They were broadcast on TV as a short animation, 2-3 minutes, every day. It was fun, silly and very clever at the same time. Maybe you would say "funky". :D

    My nickname comes from two greek words or prefix: the first one is ' philo ' which means ' who has tendency, is inclined towards, disposition for, love for, sympathy for '; the second one is ' autòs ' which means ' oneself '.
    I read this word ' filauzio ' somewhere in an Italian book, and decided it could mean one selfish, selfinterested person, one who doesn't care what other people think and isn't influenced by other's remarks.

    Well, this isn't my nature at all; however my life so far has taught me that you have mostly to rely on yourself and take your decisions without caring what other people might think of them, then ' filauzio ' could exorcize yourself of your fears, allow you to recollect your strengths when you're growing short of them ; then I adopted this nickname because I was sure not to become filauzio2 or filauzio3, since it's such a strange name which I never since came across again.

    My real name is ' Emanuele ', which means ' God with us '.
    glad to stop strict diet, splashed in belly flop? Don't care you're not light, here on English hop !

    My family members call me Bubbly. This is my nickname.

    As far as my other name (official) is concerned, it is Hafsa (though in documents it is Hifsa). Hafsa is an Arabic name which means 'Lioness'.

    @Bubbly a lioness. I wonder whether I wanted to know that. They are terrific, but also dangerous lionesses. ^-^

    @Zom Lioness is not dangerous but wise enough to know when to prey or what to prey! :)
  • ZomZom Shadok Posts: 2,800 ✭✭✭✭✭✭
    Which to me is the same as dangerous @Bubbly. Imagine she decides that I'm the prey to chase. brrrr!

    @Zom Yes but it is not her perspective. Things that may be dangerous for you are 'survival to the fittest' for lionesses. ;)
