Meanings behind names
my name is Felix Teogin Maruli Hutabarat, felix for short.
I’m a christian, and yes i am batak.
“Felix” comes from the name of an emperor ruled before Pontius Pilatus at roman age. the name “Felix” was taken by my parents from the bible itself that mentioned Felix as an emperor at that time. And if you think it was taken from Felix the cat, yes you’re wrong.
“Teogin” was given to me from the name of my grandparents. BAGINDA is the name of my grandpa, and TIOPAN is the name of my grandma. if combined, it should be “tiogin”, not “teogin” but my parents decided to use “teogin” instead.
“Maruli’ was given to me from both of my parent’s name. MARSANGKAP is the name of my father, and RISMAULI is the name of my mother. “maruli” stand for Marsangkap and Rismauli.
“Hutabarat” is my Family name. it is our pride as Batak clan, and from the family tree, I am Hutabarat number 19.
