Excellant thread... so culturally enriching. I like your name's meaning Keith Kolb.

As for mine...it is in Standardized Chinese Language (Putonghua) pronunciation

Xu = Family name

Wen = Culture

Fung = Mountain peak

Meaning = Strive to be highly cultured.

Re: What does ur name mean??

Thomas meas "twin" and Ambrose derives from "Immortal"

So I am "Immortal Twin." Sounds really cool, but doesn't make much sense

Re: What does ur name mean??

"Caitlyn" is derived from the Gaelic word for 'pure', or so I am told. "Raggio" is Italian for 'the ray' as in a ray of sunshine.

I guess I really am a $&%#-ing ray of sunshine...who knew?

Re: What does ur name mean??

As for me, don't quote me on this but..

Far as I remember, Karen was greek for 'pure' (I've heard it translated as 'virginal' but wasn't sure if they were taking the piss..)
Lynch: Uh..my minds gone blank and only the term 'lynch mob' comes to mind.. <g>

So I might kill ya, but I'll be really sure of my motives..

Re: What does ur name mean??

Benjamin means "Son of the South" or "Son of my right hand". Biblically, Benjamin is the son of Jacob (the right hand man) and Rachel, and patriarch of the tribe of Benjamin, who were effective combatants. When Rachel gave birth to Benjamin, she knew she would die following the delivery, and named her newborn Ben-oni, "Son of my suffering", before expiring. Jacob had the grace to rechristen the lad Benjamin after her death.

Ai symbol Re: What does ur name mean??

Well...let's see:
Jessica: Meaning uncertainThis name was first used in this form by Shakespeare in his play 'The Merchant of Venice', where it belongs to the daughter of Shylock. Shakespeare probably based it on the biblical name "Iscah" meaning "YAHWEH beholds" in Hebrew, a minor character in Genesis.

Louise: "(Famous) Warrior Maiden," Roughly.

Edwards: Means "rich guard", derived from the Old English elements ead "rich, blessed" and word "guard".

And...In case anyone ever asks..."Al-li" (AL-Li) comes from a variation in spelling of the name I always wanted:
Alexandria: From the Greek name Alexandros, which meant "defending men" from Greek alexein "to defend, help" and aner "man" (genitive andros).

Jo: in Scottish "sweetheart"

Qatana also means soemthing in Arabic or Farsi as it is also the name of a city in Syria but I can't find a definition.

Re: What does ur name mean??

Jacob: held by the heel
Keith: wind in a place after battle
wood:could mean i lived by the woods or that i was insane, something like a village idiot, or it could be derived from "wode" which means the ferocious one

So i either translate into the village idiot held by the heel in a breeze after battle or the ferocious one held by the heel in a breeze after battle

Re: What does ur name mean??

According to my web googling, Bryan, unsuprisingly is a variation of Brian, which in turn is a derivative of Bryn.

Bryn means hill, which by extension means high, noble and strong.

regards

Bryan the tall, strong noble one

A difficult problem is easily solved by asking yourself the question, "Just how would the Lone Ranger handle this?"

Re: What does ur name mean??

"Stuart" means "protector of the hall" from the word "steward."

My last name was made up from our original family name. When my great-great-great grandfather came over from Europe, he changed our original Dutch family name from VanBlymesser (I think) which roughly translated into "lead knife." At least, that's what the family stories say.

Re: What does ur name mean??

Anat- is a name from the bible (but it was a males name then and now used as a females name) and also is the name of one of the babilonian goddesses which was in charge of fertility.
Amitay (my name before marriage) is translated from the original name "Warzager" which means "teller of truth".
Eliraz- I heard a story and don't know how true it is but that at some long ago time one of the family members (the head of the house) was reported missing in battle and the family changed the name- Eli=god (my god), Raz=secret. As a whole- God holds the secret knowledge of the whereabouts of the head of the family.
Even if this stiry is only a story, I think it's nice

Elizabeth (hebrew= god's {sacred} promise)

So I'm the the Lord's promised beaver....

Re: What does ur name mean??

Does anyone know what Sa´na means? I named my daughter after my husband's great-great-great grandmother, who was Indonesian. I can't find the meaning anywhere and she's bound to ask about it some day.

And my name, Natasha, is from Anastasia, which means rebirth. Bradley is apparently from the Old English for broad meadow in the lee of a hill, so we must have been farmers at one point.

Re: What does ur name mean??

Hello everyone,

Fun thread, in deed.

"Ulises" is the latin form of the greek "Odysseus", which basically means "The Adventurer" or "He Who Ventures Afar". I think I have honored my name quite well, as I have been all over the place . "Garcia" isn't very fancy. It basically means "Descendant of Garcia" or "He who hails from Garcia". I guess there used to be a village in Spain (or there is still?) by that name . At some point I heard that it also meant "Nest of Herons". Put together, I guess mine would be "Adventurous Garcian" or "Adventurous Nest Of Herons". Go figure

Re: What does ur name mean??

Quote:
TARA (1)

Gender: Feminine

Usage: English

Pronounced: TAHR-ə, TER-ə, TAR-ə [key]
Anglicized form of the Irish place name Teamhair, which possibly means "elevated place" in Gaelic. This was the name of the sacred hill near Dublin where the Irish high kings resided. It was popularized as a given name by the novel 'Gone with the Wind' (1936) and the subsequent movie adaptation (1939), in which it is the name of the O'Hara plantation.
CHERIE

Gender: Feminine

Usage: English

Pronounced: SHER-ee, shə-REE [key]
Derived from French chÚrie meaning "darling". In America, Cherie came into use shortly after the variant Sherry, and has not been as common.
