Names And Their Meanings

Baby Names and Their Meanings are getting more and more consideration by parents in today’s world.

Shakespeare said that “A rose, by any other name, would smell as sweet.” But does that really hold true for people and their names? Would a little girl whose name is Rose, be as sweet natured if she had grown up with the name Brunhilde (an armed warrior maiden)? Perhaps its more than reasonable that parents today are putting so much significance on Baby Names and Meanings.

Take, for example, the children below :

Names and their meanings-creative boy

When His Parents Named Him Crescent, They Hoped He’d Be “Creative”!

Names and their meanings-red-haired girl

Her Parents Named Her Flanna, Because They Hoped She Wouldn’t Grow Out Of Her Beautiful “Red Hair”.

Names and their meanings-gardening boy

His Parents Weren’t Surprised When Garth Proved To Love “The Garden”.

When we are choosing names these days, if we are unable to find a name that appeals to us because of it’s popularity, sound, or association with a person we know, we are often basing our pick on what the name actually means. Does it describe a physical or personality trait that we would desire for our child? Does it represent a sentiment that makes us feel happy, hopeful, or peaceful? And, finally, will the meaning of this name transfer into similar positive characteristics in our child?

Although there is no scientific proof that the meaning behind someone’s name will actually begin to define that person, there often appears to be a startling relationship between children and their name meanings. Take, for example, a stubborn Connor (meaning strong-willed); a happy-go-lucky Larissa (meaning cheerful); a boisterous Tristan (meaning the noisy one); or poor Leah who seems to be tired all the time (meaning weary)! Are the similarities between these children and their names just coincidences, or do children often grow into the meaning of their names?

Whether subconsciously or consciously, parents may start to link the traits in their child’s name with their behaviors, thus reinforcing any tendencies their children have to act like the meaning of their name. And if this is indeed a fact, it seems that it would be wise to consider a name that has a positive trait that we would like to see in our child!
