"I am truly proud to have him as my Babajan, father and so much more."

Kirsty Chiaplias

 I remember sitting and talking to a Turkish friend of mine about names and how to find a suitable name for my creation. 

They offered their Turkish dictionary and said to go through it. It had English and Turkish translations and I would scroll and see words that I liked the sound of.

I came across Babajan (babacan the ‘c’ is pronounced ‘j’) when I read the meaning and confirmed it with my friend. It resonated with me - a respectful term used for and about an elderly kind man. 

Since losing my father less than 2 months ago, Babajan is even more special to me. The reason I have named this business Babajan is because of my father.
 
He was an undoubtedly respected and an extremely kind man in my life and the lives of  many others through his music and love for his family. I am truly proud to have him as my Babajan, father and so much more.
