“The sweetest music to one’s ears is his name”, how true is this adage! Everyone likes to be called by his name (provided he loves it, of course!).
A Name is very important to an individual, as he will be always addressed by it in his lifetime! Parents must pay great attention to the choice of name for their children lest the latter end up being teased or even insulted by others with a wrong name. Just some months ago, the world learnt how a Western couple gave the name ‘Hitler’ to their son, and back in Singapore, we have in our accompany a Singaporean ‘Batman’ while the ‘Batman’ father’s name (Supraman) sound like Superman!
A good name must one, which is meaningful to the bearer of the name, having said this, do you know the meaning of your name? How nice it would be if someone comes up with a sort of encyclopedia on all things related to names: the meaning of names and the origin of names, etc I thought. While surfing the net to find out whether such sites do exist, I found this names site which is really a repository of all things related to names!
The site enables one to find out more about a myriad of names grouped under different categories like Language / Origin , Gender, Location and Thematic. Such features can be useful if one is curious to find out the meaning of the names of his or her friends. Take for example, you have a Russian colleague called ‘Lada’, a search on this name under the Russian category will enlighten you that this name has a mythological theme behind it as it means the mythological goddess of Beauty.
Apart from being a repository of names, readers can also contribute name meaning or meaning of names to the website. Know what your name means? Would like to share with the world what your name means? You can do this great sharing of your name, one of your most important asset that accompanies you in this lifetime on this website!
