Meaning of Names are opposite to the characters

Its my own experience. You are free to reject or admit. I ve found, if the name of a person has a meaning that is widely used within people, in that case, the inside character of that person is just opposite of that meaning. In fact, the given name reflects the outfit/ outer look of that person, where as his choice and thinking is just opposite to the name. For ex. if name of a person is king, you will find him very smart in look, but his activities are mostly crowded with all illegal activities and mean attitudes. Similarly a name rosy may look too soft, but inside her heart, she is harder than a stone. You can find so many examples like this. In fact, if you practice, by knowing some names, you can judge that person too. Thank you. Plz share your views too.

This is a very interesting topic and I have to accept that most of the time it is true. My Chinese name is Jing and it means silence here. Whereas when I was a school student, my teacher didn't think that I was silent. As a girl, sometimes I was naughty. So later I learned it and then I tried to behave myself

I was born & raised in Korea till I was 13 years old then I came to U.S with my parents... I picked an English name thinking it would be easier for people to refer to me as something other than something they can't really pronounce... My Korean name means fire & life... And my English name means "defender of men kind"... Ummmm... Ok, not too sure about that, though I like the thought behind it...

There are certain names, which may have dictionary meaning, but not widely used by people. Persons having such types of names are perhaps not related to the written observation by me. Thank you.

Actually, my given name is Carolyn and it means strong one. Though I'm not physically strong, well, not abnormally so, I am a very strong person. I don't think I would have survived had this not been so with all the I've endured and overcome in life. Mind you, there have been days that I've just been so tired that I wished to be able to be the jellyfish. To have someone else step up and take the load. Then again, I'm glad that I am strong. We aren't able to rely on others in the first place. To expect others to step up, be different than they are, well, rarely does it happen. I don't think it's my name that factors in though. I think, as with most things it boils down to choice. I could have just decided to give up and let the world eat me up.

Normally a name is given by the parents or the persons who take care of the child. I think many a time, their dream is reflected in the name of the child and the child is grown up with that dream and his/her outfit shows like that of his/her name. Carolyn will definitely look strong and binay will look too cool n calm as per its meaning. Its perhaps due to the way we have been taught to be by our parents. But there is a twist. Normally, people dream, what they dont ve. Here too, if my dad is too stubborn and angry nature person, he will think to make him son as a cool man and kept my name as binay (i.e. cool n calm). But my inside nature reflect to the nature of my dad, which is just opposite and i m too hard in many occasions. Similar case may be with you too. I cant take a philosophy for granted. But it definitely helps us to find a clue in most of the time. Thank you.

I would disagree. I believe the meaning of a person's name holds no clues whatsoever to the inner person. A name is often chosen for you, before you have much of a personality or any core beliefs. I know some parents want to pick a name that their child will grow into the meaning of, but I believe a given name holds very little influence over how a child turns out to be.

I think there is nothing in name but what the person thinks matter a most.He/she will have the personality which is developing based on his/her thinking pattern.

i guess thats not always true. there can be some people with their nature opposite to that of name but not all. its just ecoz name has nothing to do with the nature of the person.

Like the rule of math, a philosophical output can not be applied in all occasions, still it helps in finding a clue. In support of my observation, I ve mentioned some reasons, in reply of some other responses. Thank you.
