UAE resident has his own papal story: It's in his name | Name News | Scoop.it
"I was born on September 11 of 1985 when St Pope John Paul II declared his visit to India. My aunt, who is a nun, suggested this name to my parents. Hence, I was baptised as John Paul. As part of our tradition, we don't use the baptism name in school or in official record, so I got the unique name of 'Loluck'. John Paul II was known as 'Lolek' and my name is probably an Indianised version," said Loluck, who works as a business lead of an experiential learning organisation.
