Re: What does ur name mean??

Anne (Ann, Ana, Anna) is derived from the Hebrew "Hannah" which means "favor" or "grace".

Marie (Mary, Maria) is derived from the Hebrew "Mariyam". The meaning is uncertain but can mean "sea of bitterness", "rebelliousness", and "wished for child". My mother took it from the the Mother Mary of Jesus Christ.

Giri: Although my ancestors are Italian, "Giri" has two meanings the first is Sanskrit meaning "mountain, cloud" and the second is Japanese meaning "social oblication or debt." I could not find an Italian meaning for it. It is also not an abbreviation for another Italian name such as Giribaldi. Who knows, maybe I have an ancient ancestor that traveled to Italy from the far east on the ancient trade routes across Asia?

Anne Marie Giri

Re: What does ur name mean??

Patrick is of Latin origin, and its meaning is "patrician, noble".
Togher, from the Irish Gaelic, meaning either "Beloved friend" or derived from a place name (An Tochar) meaning a causeway. A causeway is an elevated roadway, usually across a broad body of water or wetland. I find this pretty ironic, since I'm a wetland ecologist and road construction projects provides a major part of my workload.

Re: What does ur name mean??

Ashley is derived from ash trees or ash meadow. Not very interesting. HAHA.
Carter is one who transports goods.

Couldn't find the meaning of my maiden name.

So I am a person who transports ash trees apparently.

Re: What does your name mean?

In Hebrew, "K'rey-Na" means "Rays of light of God," meaning the beams of sunlight that shine down from between the clouds, like the kind you see after a storm. It's supposed to mean the person is a divine gift of light. Unfortunately, because "keren" also means horns, as in goat-type animal horns, it can also be misinterpreted from Hebrew as "Horns of God." Please don't.

Abrams comes from the archaic-Hebrew name Abraham, which means Father of Many Nations/Peoples (Av = father, ra = contraction of har-bay = many, am = people).

Re: What does your name mean?

Auden translates to "Old Friend". Pleasantly fitting I think, as an old friend of my parents (whom I was named after) called on the day I was born. He was unaware of this, and my parents were/are unaware of the meaning. I do not know the meaning of Stille
