The History Of My Name Manashantii  6th June 2013. Manashantii

In late 1991 until the late period of the year of 1993 I meditated (without facing idols) for a new name. I wanted a name that I can Spiritually and Psychologically grow into, and the name had to affirm my being, my goals and my purpose. In late 1992 I chose to use the words Manashantii as my forename and started to use the name Manashantii.  In June 1995 I officially changed my name by Deed poll to Manashantii. I created the name Manashantii which are two words after personally studying some Sanskrit and Hindi. I chose the name because of the meanings and also because it could have been a Ghanaian Ashanti name. I happen to be part Ghanaian.

In India they have the name Shanti for a girl which means Holy, Saint, Patience, Peace, quiet and silence. Manashantii’s name is not Manshant, Manshanti, Manashanthi, Manassanthi, Manahshanti, although it is the same meaning  as Manashantii. Neither is her name Shanti, Shanthi, Santi, Santhi, Shant, Shanta or Santa although it is the same meaning as Shantii.

Manashantii recently discovered that Manashanti is a popular girls name in Kerala which is in the South West of India. She is also aware that there was an Indian film called Manashanti made in 1969, she has never seen the film.

In Ghana they have the name Nana Ashanti or Nana Asante, which means Princess of Ashanti tribe, but this is not Manashantii’s name. In Ghana they have the name Mana Ashanti, Mana Asante in Ghana Mana means fourth born girl child and Ashanti is a Ghanaian tribe and is used as a name but neither of these are her name or the meaning of Manashantii. Manashantii is first born and the only child created together by her mother and father. Manashantii does have sixteen half siblings from her father and one half-sibling from her mother.

Manashantii really loves Asian culture as she believes that there are similarities in African and Asian cultures. Manashantii used to be a mantra that she made up which she used to chant when meditating without idols facing a blank wall to connect with her true core being (her oneness of self) and to be in union with God.
