I have often thought that my name was a unique identity. I also have taken pride in the fact that when I google my name there are a very small number worldwide who share my first name and excitingly enough not a single person worldwide that shares my exact name.(Please alert me if you do find anyone else).

I have known though all my life that my name came to be purely through error and what a happy accident it has turned out to be. When I was born I was registered at birth at the local home affairs office and requested by my parents to be registered as SENTE’ (friend of the family visiting at the time from Holland)MARIMUTHU(grand parents on my mother’s side). The clerk doing the registration unknown to my parents upon registration had registered me SENTHY MARIMUTHU.  Needless to say my birth certificate arrived to the dismay of my folks with an incorrect name.




That proved to be only the beginning of my unique identity. Since then as far back as I can remember people in general especially close family members have for some reason never taken the initiative to pretend to even try calling me by my name. Hilarious as this sounds it has and continues to annoy me like zits on a teenage face. My sister two years older than I am has consistently called me Sinthy.  Occasional through error or annoyance has on the rare occasion actually mustered the courage to mutter out SENTHY. My brothers both also have adopted the SINTHY in laziness or SENTHY when trying to remember my actual name every so often through default!


All through school somehow teachers as luck would have it actually cared enough to pronounce my name correctly every time. Perhaps I should have gotten them to teache my siblings because heaven knows I have tried a million times and through decades have failed. Oh well lesson learned, seize an opportunity while you can, especially if you want to be identified correctly, get your teacher to train your siblings how to say SENTHY haha.


Through the years I have said things like do you know the car brand Sentra well Senthy is like Sentra!!! Alas that has worked fewer times than I care to recall. There are those that choose to rename me Sindy, Sandy, Cindy, Cynthia, Senthilla, Santy and Santay. So much so that I now, when talking over the phone to numerous cold callers and strangers, have resorted to a little slogan that after the fifth or sixth time gets captured and recorded effectively.

S- for Sugar

E- for elephant

N- for not

T- for tea or coffee ?

H- for happy

Y- for yes

Ps. if you are getting my email then add M- for mother

Then comes the giggle on the other end of the line.  I wonder sometimes if the listener is giggly at the marvel of the explanation or their lack of getting it the first time. I have mastered this chant so many times on the phone that I find it easier now to just do that in person also.  Then comes the age old Indian question …..



Firstly why would someone shorten their perfectly acceptably lettered name. Secondly why oh why do Indian folk in my circle of people often very often assume it to be short of something as if my name was not real or complete or enough!


It means my parents cared enough to name me! It means using that name I was able to enroll in school, get an education and even do a resume that actually matches my identity documented name. It means I have an identity for my Tombstone one day and in the interim for Credit Approval or to open a bank account or seek medical attention or like all the other mortals out there with names to have a social media account or several if I wish using my real government registered parental chosen(oh well not in my case) name. It means also I get to be different from you in that my name is different to yours. So when we are both in an interview waiting room and they call my name you will know that I have been called and not you. THAT IS WHAT IT MEANS!!!!!!

FOR FURTHER QUERIES try GOOGLE or better yet I have taken the time to google a little for you as you will now read.
