Does your name define you or do you live up to your name? What does your name mean, not just it's "translation" but what does it mean to YOU?
I was named after a famous song in the early 60's. Not sure where my middle name comes from. The song isn't one of my faves, I can't say I even like it, but it's ok. I like my first and middle names together. It would make a good "single" name or last name. If I use just my first and last name, I'll change it so that it blends and is spelled like a surname.
My first name means "lady" , middle name means "of the meadow" and by translation, I think my last name means "charmed or happy". I can't say that my life has lived up to that last part and I'm seriously considering changing my last name legally and permanently. I like the name and what I THINK it means, but not what's attached to it, in other words my family and history.
Lady of the Meadow ~ Look at The Goddess of the new age religious ideas, the Star or the Empress in a Tarot deck. Fertility, abundance, dream and wish fulfillment. I am and I can be everything I want to be.
I've decided to live up to my understanding of it. Not just in my dreams when I sleep, but every day of my life.
That's what my name means to me.
How about you? What does your name mean to you?
