My parents didn't tell me why they chose that name for me. Mae is a derivative of the name Mary and Yen is the currency of Japan. How about you?

My mom wanted to name me Renee, she had that name picked out from when she was a little girl. When my dad filled out the birth certificate, he named me Teri Renee, cause he thought it would be cute to be like my cousin Cheri Denee. My mom was furious, and still called me Renee for the majority of my young life. When I was in High School, I started using my first name just to piss off my mom. Teri is an English name it means 'earn', and Renee is latin and means 'reborn'.

My mother is very religious. She wants that our name has some saint with it. She got our names from the book almanac. My name is Margarita. She said that my name is the name of a saint, St. Margarrete. I just love it though some people would laugh of my name because it is the name of the older people in our country. By the way, I read some books I the meaning of my name is pearl. It is pretty nice, I guess, PEARL that's the meaning of my name.

Mine is "Alexandra". According to my Dad he chose the name because it was the name of the lead singer of a band he loves called "Fairport Convention". According to my mum it's because I'm named after a Russian Czarina. The name literally means "defender of man", which is quite nice, but makes me think of Superman!

My name is Taylor. It has the most boring meaning in the world... "a tailor". Sometimes I wish had a more feminine name because Taylor is a unisex name meaning both males and females can have this name. But anyway, the name Taylor has been in my family for centuries, on my dad's side all the males were named William Taylor or some form of Taylor.

hey taymouse, taylor is a nice name and i guess your father loves that name so much, i can see. But your profile says your a girl, and taylor is well, usually a boy's name. I wish your parents gave you a more feminine name. But oh well, the good thing is that you're unique. I even wished i had a masculine nick like Toni or Alex but of course i wanted a feminine name.

My name is Charles. It is from Old German 'Karl' and means 'free man'. The first Holy Roman Emperor was Charlemagne (in Latin that is Carolus Magnus), meaning Charles the Great. Carolus became Charles in France, and was adopted by the English in the 17th century and has been a popular name of kings since.

My name? Well, I'm head-on-the-clouds proud of my name..hehe! My real name is KENA KARIN, both my nanay and tatay love letter "K" and so decided to have our names (we 5 children) starts with that letter. my father told me that KENA was the name of a brave Korean pilot woman and KARIN, well he said he simply likes that name and changed E to I so it wouldn't be the common spelling of Karen.. my nickname, "YEN" which my older brother gave me, does not only mean the currency of Japan but also means a desire of longing:)

I didn't find out where my name was from until I was 18 and my mom was talking about it with someone else. She told them she got it from a soap opera!! Aggh! I'm named off some soap opera star from the 80's.

My Name is a derivative of Jemima and it means "beutiful". My nickname is a derivative of Jonah and it means "Dove". I fit the latter more than the former, LOL, for I have the characteristic of a dove indeed--shy and elusive.

My name is Cecille Carmela... "Cecille" was taken from my patron saint, St. Cecilia, the patron saint of musicians, whose feast day falls under my birthday November 22, 1988. While the name "Carmela" was taken from the church where my mom usually pray when I was still in her womb. She always prayed there and wished for her first child to be a girl. It is a Filipino myth that naming your child after a Saint can make them a good person in the future. Well, I don't really believe in this. But my mom obviously believes in it. :D Well... that's it :D

Wow, compliments to your parents from me, they have a lot of imagination.... I like your name. My name is Francesco, my parents called me with this name because my granfather's name was Francesco. Also my sisters and my brother have been called with their name for this reason: Berta and Elena are the names of my grandmothers (they are still alive, they are 91 years old) and Enrico was the name of the other granfather of mine. Today in my country this tradition is dying, parents give their children the names they like, not the names of their parents anymore.
