Albanian: why did you arrive


Senior Member
Hello forum members,

I was told that in Albania unwanted children may in some cases be given a name that means more or less "Why did you arrive/come".

Could someone tell me how exactly this is written in Albanian? Can it be a male and a female name?

Thanks in advance!

    I know just little Albanian, but it should be something like "pse vjeni" (in the northern dialect I used to hear). Try to google it, trying "perse" instead of "pse" and "vini", "vjen" instead of vjeni. Or "pse ke ardhur"? That sounds too long for a name. Wonder if you find some result of your quest!
