Well I am not a parent myself, but every little girl has their favourite names that they plan on naming their children (I can't speak for you guys tongue.gif ). I am interested in learning about names and what they mean. Whether you have children or not, I would love to hear them. So please, share!

My daughter's name is Mairead Elizabeth.

Mairead (rhymes with parade) is Gaelic for "pearl" , Elizabeth means "consecrated to God". Therefore, she is my pearl consecrated to God. I'm totally in love with her and her name! Yes, I am a proud da! biggrin.gif

My daughter is Kathleen Mackenzie. Kathleen is my mother's name (and it means pure), and when I picked out Mackenzie's name, the book said it meant "daughter of the King". That seemed quite fitting to me, since I always knew she was a princess. And daughter of the King (as in Jesus)....my hope for my daughter is that she will always know how precious and valuable she is to God.

Since then I have seen a few other meanings of Mackenzie, but I'm sticking with mine tongue.gif

My son's name was Patrick Elijah. He was named Elijah after one of my best friends growing up (and the prophet), and Patrick because it was one of the only names that sounded good to me with Elijah. He died when he was 7 weeeks old of SIDS.

I have always wanted to name a boy Angus, though. It is such a cute name!!

I am very sad to hear that, Susie. Elijah has always been one of my favourites. I think it sounds so cute.

Thanks, Em smile.gif Elijah is a great name. It means "My God is Jehovah" or something to that effect. And I think Patrick means "nobleman" or of noble birth.

What names have been your favorite?

I love the name Alexander, which is a Greek name that means protector of mankind. I just like the name. I think for a girl's name either Gwyneth (a Welsh name meaning blessed) or Wren. I love reading these posts, keep them coming. biggrin.gif

My son's name is Gerald (german) and its a form of Gerwald and it means Ruler of the Spear. (Ger = old german name for spear) (wald = old german for ruling).
My family tends to lie in the old german names. My fathers name is Wiking which is the german writing version of Viking.

My brothers name is Gunter (King in the Ring of Niebelung) which means Army- Warrior / Fighter

My mothers name is Siegrid which means which means beautiful Victory (Sieg = means victory and fridhr (nordic) = beautiful and put together for a woman you leave the f away - with the f in the name it would be a male name)

Then my aunt Siegrun. Siegrun means Magic or secret Victory.

I am one of the exceptions since my name is from India.

Amrita - is the name of the nectar the Gods in India drink to keep their immortality.

My daughter is named Chelsea Patricia. I've always loved the name Chelsea and vowed when I was young(er) that if I had a daughter, her name would be Chelsea. Patricia is my mothers second name.

My oldest son, is Aric Fionnlagh. Depending on the source, Aric is Teutonic or Norse and means "Ruler". Fionnlagh is gaelic and means "fair-haired warrior".

My 3 year old is named Aaron Stuart. Aaron meaning "lofty or inspired" and Stuart is named in honour of someone we knew who died.

My 1 year old son is Kaelan John Lawrence. Kaelan is Scottish gaelic and means "victor" or "victorious people" depending on the source. John is my fathers name and Lawrence is my stepfathers name. I can be diplomatic.

..., Lee is English meaning field meadow.

Such neat names everyone has picked.

Rindy

Lee also means sheltered and protected.

Wow! Tassie and Shadows - you guys are prolific!

Susieq76, I am really sorry to hear about your son. That must have been, and continues to be, a horrific experience. I too like Angus, but I can't seem to get her to go for it. She thinks Lachlan would be a great name for a boy and I agree, too. (But I'd rather have Angus).

Keltic, how did you decide on the spelling for Kaelan? It is a neat name. As K is not a letter in the gaelic language, did you decide to change a c to k?

We saw it as a variation for "Cailin" in a book that we were looking through. The spelling with the 'k' just struck me and I kept on turning back to it on my list of "definite maybes". I should have actually written that the origin of Kaelan was scottish gaelic.
