Thanks for the support for my campaign and yes davidB I think Ice Hockey is a cool game(not just literally).

Anyway there was a rumour once that is named after the French rev. figure Jean-Paul Marat but he himself debunked it.
Heres the chat transcript:
Interview With Marat Safin by Atptennis.com (http://www.safinator.com/july02.html)

Q. I read somewhere that your parents named you after the French revolution figure Jean-Paul Marat?

MARAT SAFIN: No, it's just a Muslim name. I think you know that I'm Muslim, you know, this religion. Yeah, that's why they call me because is Muslim name.

Q. Does the name mean something in Muslim?

MARAT SAFIN: Somebody told me, but I forget. I don't know. I don't know. Freedom. I don't know, something good for sure (laughter). Not French revolutionary. But I hope also because of him. Maybe because of him also. Maybe something it's a royalty (laughter).


Go to this link for more on him, his ethnicity and his religion, actually this is another forum(not as good ours though)

Quote from: "marvin"
Het i heard that Marat is muslim shocking and not only is marat muslim but he is also a turk. yes, tatars are turks, just like uzbeks and kazakhs and turkmens and chechens etc. marat is a turkish name, it is derived from murat. for those of you who follow soccer, turkish striker ilhan mansiz is also tatar.Does anyone knows something about it??


yeah and he's a practising muslim... when he can.
