Technically, Adam (from Hebrew) means "red earth".

Which, less subtly put, is "mud".
Hooray.

In my case, Gareth is an anglicisation of the Gaelic name, Gearóid (Gar-owed ), which means "spear warrior", apparently. O.o

behindthename.com (my source for everything to do with names) does not list my name!

It list three variations of it, two are British and are very similar. Just take one letter from one and one from the other. And there, you have my name!

But those variations ultimately come from Rebecca. (Which isn't my legal name.)

Quote:
Meaning & History
From the Hebrew name רִבְקָה (Rivqah), possibly meaning "a snare" in Hebrew, or perhaps derived from an Aramaic name. This is the name of the wife of Isaac and the mother of Esau and Jacob in the Old Testament. It came into use as a Christian name after the Protestant Reformation, and it was popular with the Puritans in the 17th century.

My name is Susan, and I think it means a flower but I'm not entirely sure. My hebrew name is Shoshana, and that means flower, particularly lily or rose.

using the link that heavenlybliss provided, I looked it up to confirm, though I remember being told this when I was younger, as I was in a Jewish school and everyone was called by their hebrew names.

שׁוֹשַׁנָּה (Shoshannah).

My grandma's name is Suzette. It's tradition to name the first two children after the paternal grandparents, and the second two children after the maternal grandparents. But since my parents are rebels, and because they had only girls, it worked out a little differently. I'm named after my maternal grandma and I'm second child, though it's a variation. On my mother's side, I have tons of cousins named Isaac a first born, and Susie the second born. But I'm the only Susan. :P

Kathryn means Pure, but I'm actually named after my great grandmother. We assume she spelled her name differently than I do because we don't know and I have an unusual spelling.

Jessica, according to wiki, comes from the Hebrew Yiskah, apparently means foresight. The root of the word is "to see", and the name implies foresight or clairvoyance.

Huh, things you learn.

The listed meanings are:
Foresighted
God's grace
Wealthy
"He sees"

. . . *cough* but as you all know my name is JESS and that means "absolutely awesome and attractive person".

My name's Imogen and in Irish it means "maiden" or "woman" and in Latin it means "image of her mother" which is pretty good cause I'm almost identical to my mother

My name is an Irish surname. My full name isn't Cassie, though.

I was named after my great grandmother

My name is really rare, but the closest name I've found means 'all-containing' or 'universal'.

For years I thought my parents made mine up/misspelt it on purpose, but it turns out it's a normal, fairly ethnic name, with an English pronunciation >.>


I'm perfectly normal; it's the rest of the world that's insane.

Apparently, my main one means 'swan'. O.o
The others mean 'lily', 'follower of christ' (which I am not), 'lively, alive', and 'snow'. Right. That was an educational post. O.o

Ellen (my middle name) means "light" "torch" or "bright" which is slightly more interesting. Haha

My name means strong or war-like. My father was a track coach and I was named after one of his students that won the state championship the year I was born. It's spelled as the alternate spelling because that's how she spelled it. She's now deceased.
