I was just looking up names on a baby name site (sooner I start working the better), and I thought I'd make a topic about it.

What does your name mean? What are its origins? How did you get your name? Anything specific behind it?

You can look your name up at www.babynames.com

Personally...

My name means "Linden Trees Near the Water" and it's English. My mum's surname was actually Lindsay, so that's how I got it.

Your turn!

My name's Victoria, and apparently it's Latin and means 'winner, conqueror.'

Don't know why my parents named me that.

"Of Scottish Origin"

Ermm, My mum and dad thought of "Keith" or "Craig" for me until my brother, all of 3 years old at the time stepped in with the idea of "Scott".

Edit: Oh! There's some conflicting information on that site laugh.gif http://www.babynames.com/Names/name_display.php?n=Scott

My big brother wanted to call me Boco. After one of the trains on Thomas the Tank Engine.

I'm glad my parents went with their gut instinct there.

I'm a Sharon-Catherine.

And yes its a silly double-barrelled first name. Only used by my mother if I have been a naughty girl. happy.gif

Sharon - Hebrew, a plain/flat clearing
Catherine - Greek, Pure/Virginal dry.gif

I am called Sharon because is just a name my dad suggested to mum and she liked it.

And Catherine - after my great aunt Catherine in Lewis.

I dont know why they bothered with Catherine. Because my eldest sister Katy's real name is Katherine-Elizabeth. (after another katherine mind you).

My parents seemed to enjoy the double name thingy. Esther is Esther-Mary. rolleyes.gif

Donna is actually a name a lot of Italian people call their dogs laugh.gif

And I did the same thing as a lot of people's older brothers and sisters and refused to call my brother anything but Matthew until he was 3 months old.

Ooh I just search Aisa (my name) and name on ask. And I found a meaning. In greek she is destiny, but theres also fate, doom,
QUOTE

"In red dust thousands fell, horses and men; and chariots overturned were strewn there: blood was streaming all around like rain, for deadly Aisa (Doom) raged through the fray." -Quintus Smyrnaeus 11.304

"Know'st thou not that round all men which dwell upon the earth hovereth irresistible deadly Aisa (Fate), who recks not even of the Gods? Such power she only hath for heritage. Yea, she soon shall destroy gold-wealthy Priamos' town, and Trojans many and Argives doom to death, whom so she will. No God can stay her hand." -Quintus Smyrnaeus 3.650

"But mortals are not free to choose prosperity nor stubborn war nor all-destroying civil strife: Aisa (Destiny), giver of all things, moves a cloud now over this land, now over that." -Greek Lyric IV Bacchylides Frag 24

"For all their [the Trojans as their city was plundered] prayers, no God defends them now; for strong Aisa (Fate) oversees all works of men, and the renownless and obscure to fame she raises, and brings low the exalted ones. Oft out of good is evil brought, and good from evil, mid the travail and change of life." -Quintus Smyrnaeus 13.472

"Far other issues Aisa (Fate) devised, nor recked of Zeus the Almighty, nor of none beside of the Immortals. Her unpitying soul cares naught what doom she spinneth with her thread inevitable, be it for men new-born or cities: all things wax and wane through her." -Quintus Smyrnaeus 11.272

"Powerless for her help [where the iallies of Troy amongst the gods] to override Aisa (Fate); for not Kronos' Son can stay the hand of Aisa (Destiny), whose might transcendeth all the Immortals, and Zeus sanctioneth all her deeds." -Quintus Smyrnaeus 14.96

Ok, might have got a little carried away there. I've looked for things before but never got anywhere.

My first name is Celtic/Gaelic and means fair and white.

My middle name means 'a honey bee' and is Greek. That is so cute!

My other middle name/first part of last name means "Warlike" and is Latin.

And my last last name is Celtic/Gaelic and means "Brave".

Yes chaps, I do have too many names. It is silly stuff.
