"Who knows where Reza was born?"

All I remember is that Dev (ACMILAN1983) has Indian origin (I hope that I got this one right Big Grin). I don't know where zeekay is from either (Somehow I wanted to say that he has something to do with Pakistan?) Big Grin

Now, is Reza a typical name for Iranians? I am very bad with names. I could tell if someone is Chinese, but that's all. Big Grin
Well, my forefathers came from Afghanistan and some places near Russia some 300-400 years ago if they that counts for anything Big Grin

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Reza ([ɾeˈzɒː], also spelled Raza, Reda, Redha, Rida, Ridha [rɪˈdˤɑ], Rizah, Rıza [ɾɯˈzɑ], Ridho, Ridlo or Roda; Arabic: رضا‎, Riḍā) is a male given name used commonly in the Muslim world, it comes from Arabic and it means contentment. It also appears as a surname.


Rida (Reza) is an Islamic concept rooted in the Qur'an and the practices. This idea of contentment is expressed in two Qur'anic verses which discuss the contentment of Allah with believers and, conversely, of believers with Allah:
Allah was well pleased with the believers... ([Quran 48:18])
Muslims believe that Allah's pleasure with the servant is expressed through his gifts both material and spiritual and the servant's pleasure with Allah is the name of his obedience to Allah's commands and submission to his will. Rida on the part of the human also includes his determination to accept Allah's decree irrespective of whether it is favourable or unfavourable.[citation needed]

Because the Arabic dh sound (comparable to the English th) does not exist in the Persian language, Persian-speakers replace the sound with a z. This pronunciation was also adopted by other languages influenced by Persian, most of all Turkish and Hindustani. In the Maghreb region, the name is spelled Reda, due to the French influence during the colonial times.
