What’s in a name?

MZ’s parents named all his daughters with flower names. Eldest daughter is named after the satinwood flower – “Yuzana” in Burmese. The middle daughter, who is MZ, in actual fact is short for “Myinzu”; it is a rare orchid that can only be found in the dense jungles of Asia. The youngest daughter is named after the jasmine “Sabai”.  The flowers are posted below in order.

Both the satinwood and jasmine have their own wonderful unique scent; MZ doesn’t know how hers is ☹ but she was lucky enough to have been shared a rare photo of her “name”.

Cho and her two sisters aren’t named after flowers but they have their favorites flowers; that is another post to follow soon.
