I was tagged by my lovely bestie cgm12 for this challenge 😂
So apparently my name doesn’t exist on the Urban Dictionary and I didn’t want to be the one to define it 😂 So yeah. Instead of that I’ll tell you that my name is Toiba and in Yeddish it means a dove.
And I’ll also tell you the very interesting incident that led to my name being ‘Toiba’
In India, the family elderly are the ones who keep the newborns name. So my grandpa named me 'Tayba’. We have this ceremony where a goat is sacrificed and its meat is cooked and fed to the relatives and the poor. They also name the newborn during this ceremony as its on the newborn’s account that the goat/sheep/lamb is sacrificed. What happened is, my uncle misheard my grandpa and when the goat was being slaughtered the name said was 'Toiba’. We can’t change the name unless the ceremony is performed again so I got named 'Toiba’ instead of 'Tayba’. I was around 11when we got to know this was actually what had happened 😂
*This is what Urban Dictionary says about Tayba*
A name usually given to a great, loyal friend. Mostly girls. Tayba’s are always beautiful inside and out, are the most considerate beings ever and have an amazing smile. They are very intellectual and are nearly always right. Tayba’s always have perfect teeth and are so modest but thats what makes them so attractive. They are genuine and sincere and they are great people.
I do not have a perfect set of teeth but! This definition is definitely what my besties describe me as 😂
