I think best meaning was told by Dr Abdul Kalam ..........I am not a HANDSOME Guy, but I can give my " HAND " to " SOME " one who needs help from me. Beauty is in heart and not in face.

Take the meanings of few words ending with "some"

Wholesome ...................beneficial (adjective)
Troublesome ................. causing a lot of problems or worries for someone(adjective )
fearsome ............. frightening (adjective)
Gruesome ,,,,,,,,,extremely unpleasant or shocking ..... (adjective)
Awesome ...........causing feelings of great admiration, respect or fear (adjective)


So, you can see, adding "some" at the end of noun creates an adjective but gives inconsistent pattern of meanings. Then come to the word "HANDSOME" which will create another adjective , which describes a man who is physically attractive in a traditional, masculine way:Agreeable to the eye or to correct taste; having a pleasing appearance or expression; attractive; having symmetry and dignity; comely; -- expressing more than pretty, and less than beautiful; as, a handsome man. ...more
