NIDALAP is simply “Paladin” word reversed. But beyond this simple explanation lies one of our fundamental philosophy: resourcefulness.
NIDALAP’s founder name is William Li. This “Li” surname is the world’s most popular surname. It is estimated that more than 100 million people in the world bear this surname. Even if there are only 0.1% of them whose name is William, there are still around 100 thousand people named William Li. And even if among those 100 thousand William Li only 0,1% of them are photographers, there are still around 100 photographers named William Li! So using any combination or even spelling variation of “William Li” as the photography brand is not a wise decision.
William Li has a nickname: Paladin. Unfortunately this nickname is also quite popular, especially among gamers. It is rare to get an unused “Paladin” username on popular websites. But when the letters are reversed, the username often becomes available.
Sometimes a problem can be solved just by looking it from a different perspectives.
Nowadays, even NIDALAP username has become quite known too. When NIDALAP username is not readily available on websites/apps he wishes to register, NIDALAP will use an alternative username: nidalapisme. This is a word than can be read differently in two languages. In English it is read “NIDALAP is ME” and in Indonesian it is read “NIDALAP-isme (English: nidalapism; a philosophical view from NIDALAP’s perspective)”.
Since 2019, NIDALAP has also become the family name for descendants of William Li. The first descendant of William Li bearing NIDALAP name is Prajna Eka Nidalap.
