  • AICooL
    AICooL Month ago

    Lel my parents are Pakistani and I am Aqsa Israr and believe me, Israr is usually a first name but my dad changed his surname Ali into Israr when he moved to Hong Kong so ask him why! Aqsa is the name of the holy mosque in Jerusalem and I LOVE IT! But thing is that their is a word in Urdu called Baqsa and it means box and I hate people calling me Baqsa! When people want to give me a nickname, I always tell them to either call me Aqua or Aks cause why not! And in Pakistan especially the villages, people will have surnames that is totally random!My dad surname was Ali and he has bros who are Khans, Ali's, Abbas and Arains so I have no idea what my grandfather was thinking!
