Bellady pronounced Bell-Ah-dee
I first heard this word back in Houston, Texas when my husband observed me reuse some aluminum foil and plastic wrap and remarked,
You’re so Bellady, you’ll make a good Egyptian wife
I thought he meant thrifty. I took it as a compliment.
Bellady– country; of national origin; native to or belonging to the country. Example: Kelb Bellady (Egyptian Dog)
“Bellady Bellady” is the Egyptian National Anthem. “My Country, My Country”
I understand now that my husband meant my actions reminded him of something his mother or aunt would do.
You’re so Bellady.
I take it as a compliment.
