Diamond names

As a lover of both names and gem stones, I like many of these. πŸ™‚

Onomastics Outside the Box

Though I personally amn’t that keen on diamonds (I prefer dark stones, and ones without long ad campaigns trying to make the masses believe they’re the be-all and end-all of stones), there are many nice names meaning β€œdiamond.” I’ve also included the words for diamond in other languages, where they sound enough like real names.

Unisex:

Almas is Arabic and Persian.

Dorji is Tibetan.

Kaimana is Hawaiian, and alternately means β€œocean/sea power.”

Pich is Khmer.

Almaz is Amharic, Arabic, Ethiopian, Kazakh, Azeri, Kyrgyz, Tajik, Russian, and Ukrainian. It obviously is a very rare name in the two lattermost languages, probably not frequently used by native-born Russians and Ukrainians.

Daiya is Japanese. As with just about all other Japanese names, it can also mean many other things, depending upon the characters used, and which writing system.

Heera is Sanskrit, and also found in the various modern Indian languages.

Timantti is Finnish.

Ji Nilsson – “Sofi”.

Hi people. πŸ™‚

I shared a song by Ji Nilsson with you a couple days ago. I know her music just since a bit more than a month, and while she’s maybe not one of my most most favourite artists, I certainly do like her music. On Christmas Eve I was listening to her music, and I discovered this song. It was such a big surprise to me! Because, in some way, in a lot of ways, it’s as if this song was about my Sofi and me. My Sofi is of course called Zofijka, but I very often call her just Sofi (rather not Sofie, or Sophie, but just Sofi), and I think it is a rather rare spelling, so even this thing itself is strange, that there is a song for Sofi, not Sophie, nor Sofie, not Sofia, but Sofi. And it turns out Ji Nilsson wrote it for her sister. I think it’s such a weird and interesting coincidence. It’s really pretty much about us, only that her Sofi is her big sister.

I think I like Christmas.

Hhrrru? 😻

This is Misha. How was your Christmas pets and peeps? πŸ’š

Mine was very, very good.

On Christmas Eve I was very excited, there was Christmas tree and lots of paper and cartboard boxes and stuff, I loved it all, and all the Christmas decorations. Before my peeps had dinner, they prayed and talked and stuff so I was just going round the Christmas tree putting down all the decorations that I could reach because I wanted to have a look at them and play with them, and throwing myself at all the mysterious packets and boxes under the tree. Then they started eating and I was sulking a bit because there was no food for me. No meat at all. They didn’t even think about preparing something that I could eat. But then it turned out there are very yummilicious fishies, and I ate some salmon. I sat next to Mila at the table and she fed me. And Dad was angry because he didn’t like it, that I was sitting at the table. But I liked it, and that’s what counts. And he didn’t say why I can’t. And Mila liked it too and we were both happy and Zofijka was laughing. So I stopped sulking and enjoyed my food and I tried to eat very nicely and Mila said I did. But my peeps ate loads and loads of food, it was weird! Mum wanted to give me some, that was not fish, but it smelled gross! So I returned to playing under the tree. And then Zofijka dressed up as Santa and I was a bit afraid of her because I didn’t recognise her at the beginning, and she looked so scary and was shouting so loudly, louder than usual I mean, and took out all that stuff from under the tree. I helped her with it. And it turned out they were presents! ANd there were presents for me too! Just for me! Special presents for Misha! I got a colourful ball that is full of glitter and I can play with it, and lots and lots of treats. There are ones that are very Christmassy and are in the shape of stars and I like them so much yum yum they smell like chicken! And I also got my favourite sauces! A LOT of sauces. I was so sooooo happy! Then I was playing with an empty bag where my presents were before, and Zofijka put me into it and gave me to Mila. I love sitting in bags, being wrapped up in paper, or closed in cartboard boxes. And Zofijka-Santa said this was another present for Mila and she forgot about it because it was hid so well under the tree and said that Mila probably won’t be happy with this present because it looks like it’s something boring and that she won’t like. And Mila saw that I am inside of the bag and she said this is the best present and she likes it the most and that it is such a beautiful present. I was so happy. I am already two years old but I am still the best present! I’m glad they aren’t sick of me yet. But then no one gave me anything to eat from my presents at all that day because the peeps went out somewhere and I was alone. Jocky was alone too and I could hear him crying outside that he wanted to go with them. He’s lucky, he can at least be outside, but what can I say? They don’t even let me out of the house. ☹

I slept through all Christmas day because I was so exhausted after all the playing and emotions I had in the evening.

But on the second day of Christmas I got a lot of treats, and two sauces! But peeps were eating a lot too so why can’t I? And I was playing with Zofika and putting down all the Christmassy decorations and playing with them again. Christmas is real fun! I can’t wait for it to come again. I don’t know why I was so afraid of it.

Mishpurrs. πŸ’œ

Joakim Lundell ft. Arrhult – “All I Need”.

Hey people. πŸ™‚

Today again I have some Scandi-pop for you, from Sweden. I think it is a really cool song, and I like it both in this version I’m sharing with you as well as the acoustic version. As for Arrhult, they’re a sibling duo, consisting of two sisters – Abbey and Agnes Arrhult – and from what I understand they gained popularity because of releasing some songs together with Joakim Lundell. In the very near future I’m going to show you another song by Joakim Lundell, made in collaboration with another female vocalist – Sophie Elise from Norway.- But for now, here’s the song with Arrhult, I think it’s pretty nice. πŸ™‚
