Well done Nuray... You really impressed me! :)

Although some of the names have more meanings - I just want to add a little info on "Lana"...

The word "lana" comes from "lane" (SoranĂ®) or "landik" (KurmancĂ®) which is the name for what I can best describe as "baby bed" - in e.g. beds made for babies - which one usually can swing/rock to get the baby to fall asleep... And in connotation it means "Home" as Nuray mentioned - but only because a baby's bed is the symbol of a "home"... Or a metaphor for "home", if you like...

the word Diyar in Kurdish means clear and vivid.

example: Asom le diyara : I can see the horizon,

we are using Diyar daily. of course because of vicinity of the Kurds, Persians, Arabs we can see some words in other cultures. I myself have a very deep respect for Persian culture. in persian Diyar means: something like a village, land with water.

I do expect the Kurds here not to answer the others with anger and please do not insult them, the way that we are talking show the way that we are thinking. so be calm and smart enough to answer by words not weapon.
