What Is Inaanak In English? (Answers)
INAANAK IN ENGLISH – There are several Filipino words that do not have a direct translation in English, that’s why we need context to fully translate them.
In this article, we are going to take a look at the Tagalog word “Inaanak” and its translation in English.
Inaanak could be directly translated to as a “Godchild”, “godson/goddaughter”.
According to the Cambridge Dictionary, a godchild is a child for whom a godparent is responsible for in terms of religious development.
In Tagalog, the godfather and godmothers are called “ninong” and “ninang” respectively.
Here is an example sentence:
- Ang aking pamangkin ay inaanak ko rin.
In English, this is translated as:
- My niece is also my godchild.
In the Filipino culture, the godparents (ninongs and ninangs) are expected to give presents or money to their godchild during Christmas day.
Having a ninong or a ninang could also be used to get an advantage in job applications if your ninong or ninang could pull some strings within the company.
