*Long Quiz WARNING*

So Alex sends me this… and I decide to fill it out… for an interestingly LONG read check it out!

(1) The most important question – Name? – Ali
(2)Like it? – yeppers
(3) Are you named after anyone? not my first name as far as I know. My middle one maybe… after a character in a book or something.
(4) Are you a prostitute? nope.
(5) Your screenname: AliKira, ali_kira, kaligira, KiraAli and variations thereof.
(6) Would you name a child of yours after you? unlikely… not my first name anyway… maybe my middle name, but also unlikely.
(7) Then what would you name your children? I don't know honestly. (that's usually the answer I give)
(8)If you were born a member of the opposite sex, what would your name be? I don't know what my parents would have favoured… I only have the Name the Baby book from when my brother Logan's name was being considered.
(9) If you could switch names with a friend, who would that be? why swap? I wouldn't honestly… If I had to, I rather like Anastasia's name 😉 But really I wouldn't… the only reason to do so would be to stop getting comments about my Arab/Iranian/Muslim/etc. name for a bit.
(10) Are there any mispronounciations/typos that people do with your name constantly: *laughs* all the time actually! pronounciations: A-leee, Ah-lie etc. Spellings are almost NEVER right: Ally, Alie, Allie, Aly, Alli, and then there's the people who automatically assume I'm an Alice or Allison or something *sigh*
(11) Would you drop your last name if you became famous? Nope. I fully plan to be known by my full name… Not that Ali Kira doesn't have a nice ring to it, but I like the addition of my last name too.
