So who among you know the etymology of your name? What does it mean? Does the meaning of your name affect the way you live? My name means "from the warrior's camp", and I do have warrior-like traits. What do you think?

My name's origins are Hebrew. it means "Sheep" or "Lamb of God". Neither meanings do I care for very much lol..if they affected me in any way, they made me the exact opposite. I'm not christian, and I'm definately not sheep-like because I'm neither challenged in the intelligence department nor am I one to blindly accept someone else's rules or follow others.

My first name Mandi means deserving of love... I think that fits :) My middle name is an Indian name and it means falling water... maybe I'm supposed to live somewhere near water? :) I could think of a place like that, that I'd like to be right now

My name really means "Son of the Dry Lands". You may want to think that I am from some desert kinda thing but it is just the opposite. The place where I was born was marshy long centuries back, and the first land to dry out of that vast land was the place where I was born, and it is called "The Dry Lands". Ofcourse being from the Dry Lands means I have to struggle a lot to overcome the wet surroundings( circumstances in life).

My name means "strong" in Gaelic. Although I am not strong physically, since I'm a smaller statured person, I am pretty strong emotionally. It takes a lot to make me cry or break me down. So I do believe that your name does play a part in shaping who you are or who you become.
