That moment when you realize that Omid and Barney look alike, after reading that article about Telltale mentioning Half Life.

    his face looks pretty Persian to me,Probably because BOTH his parents were Persian...
    Of course your right...
    a lot of Persian families moved to the U.S in the 1970s SO he is probably american with a Persian origin...:confused:
    but tell me,why would any family name their child with a name originating from another country?:D:D
    but anyway....
    barney and omid look nothing alike,dude
    maybe their general face structure is kind of like each other but their noses,mouthes,brows,hairs are totally different...
    i'm kinda interested to how "demopan" knew,is it in the wiki?
    EDIT: checked it
    yep, its mentioned already...

    in the trivia part:
    "Omid is the first Persian in The Walking Dead Universe to be introduced and specifically named."

    *laughs* When one of the devs says, he's persian, I'll accept him as persian. As long nobody says something like this, he's just some guy. You can't trust that wiki at all. And in China, people call their children John and stuff, is that enough as answer to your question?

    No. They don't. I have no idea where you got that from. I've been to China. I mean, some people do, but that's not the majority.

    Whe don't have a majority of persian people in america, either. The name has nothing to do with the lineage. Just because he is a bit darker skinned and is called Omid, it doesn't make him a persian. He could be a turk, too. Or a mexican. I have a spanish friend called Oskan, and he isn't even muslim.

    dude,i'm Persian...
    you think i can't understand the difference between a turk or afghan(:D) or maybe even indian from my own people?
    and by the way omid is an original persian name,meaning that it's not arabic,so turks or arabic countries don't have the name omid....
    and another thing...
    WHY THE HELL ARE WE HAVING THIS ARGUMENT IN HERE?
    i suggest someone makes a thread for it with voting...
    :D

  • His parents could probably have named him that simply because it's a unique name(for that area). It wouldn't be the first time and won't be the last.

    It seems easy to mistake racial identities due to the art style of the game. :confused:

  • @superboy2011 said: Yep Omid is Persian alright
    I am Persian and Omid is a Persian name
    it stands for hope
    you can check it at Google translator:
    امید

    Heck! With that logic me and my father are greeks (i've got kinda greek nose also, so no doubt that i'm a greek) and my bro and my mom are italians.

    My uncles: german, russian and one more greek (that's a lot of greeks).

    Yeah, because you have seen a white girl called Laquisha and a black guy called Kawabato, right?

  • guys as i said before it's best to make a thread for this topic and argue there cuz everyone knows what the discussion is about...
    i'm not gonna make it since i wanna be sure it's a question for others too noy just for me and 2 or 3 other people,
    sutinen and mornai you guys are right,i accepted that already in my previous posts:
    Of course your right...
    a lot of Persian families moved to the U.S in the 1970s SO he is probably american with a Persian origin...
    but we should make a topic for it with voting and discuss it there
