That's the first name of one of my Turkish students. I make a point of using the student's names a lot in class, but this one I'm finding difficult. "How are you today, Farty?" just makes me giggle too much. Another amusing name I've come across recently is Tin Man, that's the unfortunate handle of a Chinese girl. If she only had a heart! Ok, Ok, I'm going...

Don't worry. I'm just the same. I know a Fahti in the UK who was keen to greet people with his name. I don't know how he copes.

I actually googled "Fahti" just to confirm it was really spelt this way which is how I found your post.
