I use Shawn for Zeeshan when I go to McDonald's and feel shy to use my name. Plus it makes me feel like I am living double life like Jason Bourne.

I've been called many names.
Rabul, Raibul, Rabil, Rabi, even Raul and RedBull (one of my mate used to call that cuz it was hard for him to pronounce Rabiul !! )

Then one day, one of my friend started calling me Rabz.
I found it easier for everyone to pronounce and easier for my ears, compared to all other distorted form. Over the years, as it turned out, most of my friends call me Rabz now. So much so, that a lot of my Aussie friends knows me by Rabz only !
