Quizzle: what’s in the naam!

We made up a simple quiz. We found eight tweeple who have made their very regular Indian names sound so much cooler on their Twitter handles. There’s a hint for each, come now, figure ’em out.

We made up a simple quiz. We found eight tweeple who have made their very regular Indian names sound so much cooler on their Twitter handles. There’s a hint for each, come now, figure ’em out.

@yooday Oh, yoo know the answer. It lies within yoo.

@Su4ita Focus on the number. Say it out loud in Hindi.

@shallwe Why would someone call themselves ‘shall we’ (rather suggestive, no?) unless…

@upper_na She puns on her name’s transliteration.

@Don’t_rushme_ This is too obvious for a hint!

@TheGoodJew This is not his name but part of his identity. He comes from the dry, dry state.

@TheGroovebox Sindhi-fy groovebox and you’ll get his last name. No, you won’t. This one’s a toughie.

@joshilay You already know his last name.

Tadaa...:

@Yooday is Uday Bhatia. Yoo is U

@su4ita is Sucharita Tyagi. Su-four-ita, Su-char-ita. Get it?

@shallwe is Shalvi Mangaokar.

@upper_na is Aparana Jayakumar.

@Don’t_rushme_ is Rashmi.

@TheGoodJew is DP82. He’s not Jewish. We don’t know how ‘good’ he is. But say good jew very fast, goodju, gujju!

@TheGroovebox is Amit Gurbaxani. Gurbax sounds like Groovebox. Plus box is buxa in colloquial Hindi.

@joshilay is Suresh Joshi.
