    Dear all,

    would you please help me: are Almad and Aknola plausible first names of people from Kazakhstan?

    I am translating from a video and do not want to offend by mishearing/misspelling.

    Thanks.

    The first name looks like Almat, but I've never heard of Aknola.

    What about Atmola?

    Maybe Akmola? It's old name of Astana. Almat is a "short" version of Almaty, the "south capital".

    Dude, I know nothing at all about the Kazakh language.

    Do you reckon Almat and Akmola could be two guys coming to the Czech Republic for work, then?

    The name Almat exists, about second one I am not sure. It's possible to be Akmola, Akmol or Akmal'.
