My first and middle names mean, presumably "She will add pearls", if we put it into a phrase. I couldn't work in my surname, which derives from a clan name meaning "red warrior".
Hey, hey. My daughter was a Maggie; or, Pearl of the Goddess of Plenty, from the chapel of the town of Freemen (her last name was hyphenated).
I share a birthday with Zakk Wylde, with a 20 year gap between us.
I get Samuel Taylor Coleridge, Carrie Fisher...and Kim Kardashian.
British by birth, just staying in Ireland for a bit. No proof of Irish genetics to date.
That is so cool! I didn't know that.
It seems I share my birthday with Gandhi and Sting. That would be one weird party.
ETA: Sienna shares her birthday with Oprah Winfrey, and Hope shares with Malcom X.
I have so much Irish in me it hurts. Almost literally, given the unfortunate juxtaposition with the local weather(suuuuun).
It's a violation of federal law to flip off a horse (a passing horse, that is, stationary horses are fair game).
In Florida, tying an elephant to a parking meter makes that elephant count as a car.
my first name and middle name aren't religious. "Teresa" is self chosen. so technically I have 4 names, but I dont use the confirmation one because I dont claim Catholicism anymore
Though my name is a gem stone, I was really named after a Jonny Quest character....
I just sat down
My mum thinks my dad has some Irish ancestry because of his colouring, and it turns out our surname is Irish. So I've got just enough Irish to get constant sunburn.
SAAAME! My mother's Irish, and my... shall we say donor?, has a Celtic last name. I don't tan, I burn and I glow in the dark
When I was a child and we would find the roots of our names for the first time, I got pretty pissed off at my parents. My sister got the name of my grandmother. It's the name of one of the greek mythology muses. Perfect. They thought that I would be born a boy, so they gave me the name of my grandfather. Needless to say that it's not a name taken from the muses or any greek mythology persona. It's kind of boring. So I've searched and I've searched for ANY type of information that could confirm that my name was taken after a muse as well, but couldn't find any. So I came up with the story that I'm the first muse of my kind. Take that!
Where does it come from? And what are you the muse of?
My sister's name is Kalliope. The muse of heroic poetry. It means Kali (καλή) = good, ops (όψ) = speach, voice. Mine is Ioanna -> Joanna. I think its roots is hebrew or something, although I'm not hebrew. John -> Giannis is a very common name in Greece. In greek it doesn't mean shit. I'm a self acclaimed muse of all trades of inspiration. I'm still evolving.
According to behindthename.com, "John" means "Yahweh is gracious" in Hebrew, after a couple of derivations. My name is also a feminine form of a masculine name, and also Hebrew. It means "He will add."
I don't get Hebrew names. I really don't. He will add... WHAT?! It's incomplete! Yeah, Yahweh is gracious... Why should I care? What does that has to do with me? This is just a religious statement. Why is that my name meaning? It makes no sense! No. I'm a muse. I don't care.
I'm sure they made more sense when people were given these names or used to choose them for themselves after major landmarks in their lives. Abraham of the Old Testament was originally Abram (going from "exalted father" to "father of many") and Israel, the dude the nation is names after, was originally Jacob (going from "follower", because he was second born, to "Ruling with the Lord") after he beat the blessings out of an angel that was passing by.
I think it's a prediction of a career in accountancy.
