View Full Version : Matin vs Ashraful

June 19, 2005, 04:28 PM
In the past, I have seen posts by users that Ashraful's nick name is Matin. Today, I read that, his father's name is Mohammad Abdul Matin.

It is very unlikely a father will take his last name and make that the nick name for his son.

So my guess is, his nick name is not Matin.

Well his name should be Mohamemd Ashraful bin Matin. Right!! Sicne Matin is his father's name and bin implies son/of

Matin is not his nickname, its his surname. Father's surname is Matin, hence son's surname is Matin. Thats what it should be!

His original full name is Mohammad Ashraful Matin, as far as I know..

80% sure about this: Mohammad Ashraful Matin

source: years of following articles/match reports on this kid. Only problem, all those sources contradict each other and are hardly reliable. Still, I will stand by my post.

every time i saw the name matin in a squad i thought people meant M.A matin the manager as fun or sarcastic way :duh:

Yep definately. In the u-19 World Cup before anyone knew of him he was listed as "Ashraful Matin"

i believe his name is mohammad ashraf-ul-matin...

what he chooses to be called is his business...

nonetheless, bd players have issues with names and also crack info along with the media have a tendency to misspell our names... e.g. nafis has been corrected to nafees... he has been wearing the correct spelling on his shirt for a while but only recently the media has caught up with it...

someone should really fix rana's name... shouldn't it read manzur-ul-islam rana as opposed to manjaral (what is that?) islam rana?

mashud should be masud or masood?

i am just a lilttle anal about names people... sorry...

FLM..u hv every right to be anal bout our names...

till now..the whole world seems to ignore us to a extend that even the players name were spelled wrong...

wont happen any more...

we'll bring the whole world down under our feet...

and what better way to do it than starting from the top.....

>> mashud should be masud or masood?
