    Default What are common Afghan surnames?

    Even though it's not an Afghan tradition to use them, what are common Afghan surnames used in the West?

    I've seen... Sahar, Wahidi, Azizi, Kohistani, Sajadi, etc.

    I got a really weird surname!

    I don't know what my surname is, so I just use my dad's name as my surname, and so do all my brothers and sisters.

    My granddad's name was "Mohamd'ullah", he named my Hakim'ullah - later in his ID cards and stuff he altered it to "Mohammad Hakim" - in this case, Mohammad became the name, and Hakim the surname. :wacko:

    so yeah,

    popular surname: Siddqui!
