Re: Doh Middle Names

One more thing, you might want to consider when they wrote down a name that they might have seen an english letter that looks similar somehow to an arabic letter and they wrote the arabic instead. What I mean is, they might read the english ...for eample the letter Z and in their mind they might have thought of the 'k' in Arabic and wrote down a K in english. Does this make sense?

Same with numbers. They might see the number Zero in english and think 5 in arabic and write down five in English because that is how they read it in their head. It happens if one is not paying attention.

So you might want to have someone consider the possible combos and make an alternate list of names and numbers.

I have some close friends abroad who have family in salamiyah. I will get in contact with them so they can get the local gossip from back home. They will definitely tell me anything they have heard.

Re: Doh Middle Names

In Syria they do not use your father name as last name. This is the practice in Egypt. They use your father name as a middle name.

Re: Doh Middle Names

Yes, that is true but still they have mixed up my middle name before. They didn't even put the last name at all one time, and another time they didn't put the first name at all.
