My parents told me they took my name from the calendar.My wife's name came from her grandparents idea.I think its' the same with others if we look a few years back.Some parents took it from names of Saints especially if they were born on the said Saint's birthday.Others combined the names of their parents.Some parents do some searching for a unique name while the child is still on mother's womb.But I guess nowadays were different some parents give their child two names, which I think the child will have difficulty at first writing their names especially if it's too long when they go to school.My fellow My Lotters, how does your name came about?Thanks for your time.

hello emine08, Thank you for your response.So your children names were taken from books about names of babies and you said also that giving names is sacred in your religion if I understood it right.

my parents when giving a name to me, just based on mere inspiration. not associated with my birth day or events that occur on the day of my birth. likewise, when I gave a name to my children, not associated with who, what and when .... all just based on my inspiration and a deal with wife

advokatku, thanks for responding.I just thought about the topic because I heard some parents get their child names from actors/actress, birds or animals,others names that are very hard to spell.
