About Len Inouie


Len is derived from my real name “Mulen". (Oh, how I wish it was spelled ‘Mullen')
I was born at home on 15 Sept. Not hospital. Kampung style!
My mom disapproves 'Mulen'. She wanted to name me Nuvila with ‘v’ pronounced as ‘w’.
(OMG! Thanks God I am 'Mulen' instead of Nuvila).. LOL

She was too weak to leave house after delivery. Hence, my late father was the one who took me to hospital for birth registration. So, my late dad took the chance to name his daughter 'Mulen' instead of ‘Nuvila’ (All of my siblings named by my mom).
They really had a fight over my name.Hahah…

No one acknowledge  Mulen at home indeed. It is not approved. Everyone calls me Nuwi..
(My sister spells it ‘Nuv’.. I say ‘wtf’ whenever she writes my name in the text )
But when I spell 'Nuwi', people tend to pronounce 'NU' as 'new' which is not correct.
So, I spell my name in French as ‘Nouie’ you can listen to how it is pronounced here.

Len and Nouie mystery is solved. But wth the 'I' in front came from?
I am a proud pure blood Dusun from The Land Below The Wind.
To introduce yourself of anybody in my language, we will add 'i' (pronounced as 'e') in front of the name. It is similar to usage of 'is/are’ in English.
 
To introduce myself, I would say;
'Ngaran ku nopo nga i Nouie'


Len Inouie name's mystery is solved.
