Hey peeps. How do u write the middle word of your name? I mean, not your middle name, but the ‘daughter of’ part.
I used to write it as BT… telling myself- if it is spelt that way, it can’t be pronounced ay?
Just like MOHD –it should be pronounced as MOH-D, not Muhammad.
Anyway, back to the ‘daughter of’ question… Mak used to write it as BINTE. And I hated it so much, thinking the pronunciation is like Bin-Tear..
I thought that’s how old people spell it, but watching Krayon (an educational programme from a neighbouring country on TVIQ) I just discovered that actually it’s the Singaporeans! Hahaha.
Any Singaporeans here to verify my hypotheses?
Soon, I started to write it as per in the IC, that is BINTI, which sounds more reasonable.
What about u? Do u or simply skip the word. Well, most of the time, that’s what I do… I just write my name and my surname… and it’s waaayyy better bcoz it sounds synchronized.
