WHAT'S IN A NAME
The names that we now know as first names or forenames, or given names or christian names, were originally the only names that people bore. when in the medieval times, it became necessary to distinguish people of identical names from one another--- surnames arose to specify which particular person's family or ancestry.

Where did the names actually come from? the mention of John and Mary indicates a prime source--- the Bible. the early saints were the first to adopt, or were given the biblical names.

Most of the names are Hebrew in origin and in many cases has a meaning that related in some way to its bearer or was specifically devised to do so.

example: Jeremiah has name appropriately meaning "appointed by God" and Samuel, king and prophet has a name meaning "asked of God"

Here are some of the names that has been commonly used:

AURELIA.... this is the feminine form of the Latin clan name Aurelius, ultimately from the word AURUM or Gold.

ABIGAIL..... A name of biblical origin, from Hebrew, Abigayil, meaning to say , My Father Rejoices.

ADELAIDE.....the name is the english form of the old german name, Adalheit, form from Adal, "noble" and heit, "state", "condition" hence it has the meaning "woman of noble state"

ADONIS......a Greek name, from Phoenician Adon, "Lord", compare to Adonai, "my Lord, the Judaic title of God.

AGNES...... the name comes from the Greek Hagnos, "pure"
"chaste", but it was also influenced by the Latine word Agnus, "lamb.

AIMEE.... the name which represents French Aimee, "beloved" of the english equivalent of Amy.

ALAN..... a celtic name, traditionally derived from Alun, "harmony", "concord".

ALBERT.....the name derives from Old German Adalbert, itself composed of Adal, "noble" and beraht "famous" hence, nobly famous or famously noble.

ALEXIS..... a borrowing of the Greek name Alexios, s short form for Alexander, or Alexein, to defend.now commonly used by women.

ALMA..... the origin of the name is in latin Alma, "Kind", "nurturing"

ANASTASIA....this is the feminine form of the Greek name Anastasius, "resurrection"

ANDREW...... from a greek name Andreas, genitive, andros, "man" or "manly", "brave".

    I skim a lot of blogs, and so far yours is in the Top 3 of my list of favorites. I'm going to dive in and try my hand at it, so wish me luck.

    It'll be in a totally different area than yours (mine is about average penis size) I know, it sounds strange, but it's like anything, once you learn more about it, it's pretty cool. It's mostly about average penis size related articles and subjects.
