A 4-letter name of Arabic origin with 2 syllables that carries the meaning of "my determination". This name is pretty common among the Muslim males in Southeast-Asia and typically pronounced as AZ-MI by non-Arabic speakers who can't pronounce the Arabic letter 'ain that comes before the first syllable without rupturing their tonsils.
Among close circles of friends, this name is conventionally shortened as Mi. But among circles of ignorant and indifferent acquaintances, it has the tendency to become mixed up with Azim, which is another 4-letter name of Arabic origin with 2 syllables that carries the meaning of 'protector' and typically shortened as Jim, or rather Jimmy for those English-wannabe Azims.
Mazy: Hey what's your name?
Azmi: It's Azmi.
Azmi: What's yours?
Azmi & Mazy shake hands and pretentiously smile at each other..
5 minutes later..
Mazy asks Azmi, "So Azim, whatcha doin tonight?"
Azmi curses in his head, "It's AZMI you f*ing moron!!"
Azmi clears his breath and says, "Oh.. um.. nothing fun really."
