If somebody's named Ayla Demir, she's Turkish not Indian.
20 November 2011 | by (Turkey) – See all my reviews

If somebody is named Ayla Demir, you can be sure that person is Turkish, naming a character Ayla Demir and making her Indian is like naming an Italian character Patrick O'Hara. A person named, say Tarik Ziyad can be either Turkish or Arab but both the name Ayla and especially the surname Demir are specific to Turkish. Actually, 'demir' means iron in Turkish. A kind of mistake that is very easy to correct in the age of internet while writing the script. It may seem unimportant if you're unaware of the difference, but if you are, the feeling of reality is gone. Well, that is all I like to mention about the show but since there is the minimum of 10 lines rule I guess I'll have to write another sentence and this is that sentence.
