what does my name mean? | hawwa
حَوَّاء is an arabic name meaning 'source of life' - in english, the translation would be 'eve' (like, adam and eve - and yes, i've heard all the jokes.). even though my name isn't hard at all to pronounce, almost everyone get's it wrong. that meme you see floating around of 'when the teacher get's to your name on the register and looks up with panic in their eyes': accurate description of my life.
(fun fact: i just googled 'hawwa' and apparently there is an indian restaurant in northgate, hessle called hawwa; ironic since i am actually half indian.)
