She changed her name after marriage, she born Elizabeth (Lisa) Najeeb Halaby. King Hussein choosed for her the name of Noor.

Yes Noor is very beautiful name. Queen Noor always said her name was the better gift from her husband. King Hussein too choosed the name of Princess Muna.

Hi closesttoheaven!
Thanks for posting the ling to the article. (In addition to what you said) The article said that the Jordanian government decided to close the Jerash Cultural Festival after a 1/4 of a century since its launch.

It also said that the Jordanian government chose to retain the festival but to change its name to the Jordanian Cultural Festival, which has several other models in other countries. The essence will be the same but will be used to as they put it focus more upon a more centralized broader culture.

It also said that the festival shall be held anually. This was announced by the Jordanian Cultural Minsiter Nancy Bakeer.

The article continues (as you know) to emphasize the devastation felt by the Former head of the Jerash Festival.

I hope this helps

Moreover I know Queen Noor won't let her feeling of dissapointment go unnoticed.

My question is: if the festival was 'suffering from financial shortages' as the article claimed, then why change its name, make slight addition s/changes and hold it anually as it was before? Wouldn't more money be better used by revamping what already exists and then relaunching the package?

I sometimes wonder at these decisions made.

really, incredible...

well I only discovered an arabic article about the festival and it says that it is not cancelled but they change its name?!
maybe someone can translate it better:

ÇáÚÑÈ Çáíæã

and here an article about cancelling, but I dont find a reason in it...
they said its successful but suffers from financial problems...

I read HM Queen Noor's memoir a couple of years ago. I remember she wrote that she never really identified with her name Lisa. I feel somewhat sad about reading this as personally, I believe a name given by your own parents is their special blessing to you. Is it because Lisa is a shorten form of Elizabeth, which is biblical?

I think Elizabeth is a more dignified name than Lisa - no offence to anybody called Lisa out there. Maybe Noor meant Lisa didn't suit her personality, lacked gravitas. Elizabeth is the name of the wife of Zacarias (bible and holy qur'an) and the mother of John the Baptist or Yahya as Muslims know him and has a long history.
