Nick means "he who is victorious" in I think Greek... and Porter is someone who carries your bags .

So I'm "The victorious bag carrier ."

Kanpai,

If I remember correctly, Robert means "Shining Fame" - but could be wrong. Does anyone know how that would translate in japanese? The cheesey dictionary I have didn't have a word for shining. The closest I found was sun.

I think "Adrian" was derived from an Italian city, not sure though. My mom just wanted a name that started with the letter "A", same with my other siblings.

Hi!!

Peter is from the hebrew meaning 'Rock' and Swann I am not too sure about but I guess it was used for someone who kept or looked after swans!!

How many of you live up to your names?

My wife thinks I do!! I am reliable and sometimes immovable!!

Don't expect your practice to be always clear of obstacles. Without hindrances the mind that seeks enlightenment may be burnt out. So an ancient once said, "Attain deliverance in disturbances."

Petrus, Petra, Peter - indeed contain a rock/ stone, but it ain't Hebrew. Latin or Greek I suppose.

Dana (may mean 'from Danmark'; it's a calf in Turkish, I found out. !)

David means 'Friend' in Hebrew I think. I've been told I live up to my name. As for my surname, I haven't got the slightest idea other than it may have a Spanish background

Hi,
My name means (and so do all other Christophers in case they don´t know it):

Christopher:
Cristos-Christ
Pheros-burden
Translation: Carrier of the burden of Christ. In other words, I carry the burden of knowing the truth and the responsability of spreading it. (from a christian stand point of course)

Ross:
I have no idea except that it was my great uncle´s name. (a policeman who died in a fire)

Wilson:
Translation: Son of Will. Very common in the ancient British Isles. (as was Jakobson, Mitchelson, Jackson, yadda yadda yadda.)
At your service,
Christopher

PS- Fun Topic!

At your service,
Christopher Wilson

Re: What does ur name mean??

My first name, Eric, is derived from Old Norse Eirikr, which means "ever ruler".

My middle name, Tyler, is from an occupational surname meaning "tiler of roofs" in Old English.

I don't think my last name, Simmons, is known to mean anything in particular.

From about.com:
The specific etymology of the SIMMONS surname has been difficult to establish. Several possible origins include: 1) Possibly derived from the Biblical name Simon or Simund, from the Greek form of the Hebrew name Shim'on which meant "hearkening" or "listening." 2) A possible evolution of the name SEAMAN, meaning "navigator or sailor."

Re: What does ur name mean??

Keith is Welsh, it means "wind in a place after a battle" or something similar. Kolb is a variation of "kulp" which means "calf" (baby cow).

Re: What does ur name mean??

Bronson means "son of brown" and I've been told that Diffin has something to do with "those with black hair".

In the Society for Creative Anachronism many people pick a "period" name to go by. I picked Gregor (which means fierce---which I'm not ) and Omolegane which is an early version of names like Mulligan, Milliken, O'Mulligan, etc. It means "little bald, or tonsured one" (which I am ). So my name meant "fierce little bald one".

Bronson

"A pacifist is not really a pacifist if he is unable to make a choice between violence and non-violence. A true pacifist is able to kill or maim in the blink of an eye, but at the moment of impending destruction of the enemy he chooses non-violence."
