I've decided to make a thread on surnames, some of the main points of the discussion are bellow.

1.) Share some of your family surnames.

2.) Explain what they mean.

If you have anything else to share on this topic that I haven't pointed out please share it.

Here are some of my family surnames: Khamis, Faki, Ali, Basheikh, Haji, Dossa, Abudi, Kareya, Masood.

Meanings: Khamis: Thursday.
Faki: follower.
Ali: high or elevated.
Basheikh: No clue of its meaning.
Haji: One who has completed Haj to Mecca
Dossa: No clue of its origins or meaning.
Abudi: I don't know what it means.
Kareya: No clue of its meaning.
Masood: Means fortunate, prosperous or happy.
