What my name means
What Google says:
In Hebrew the meaning of the name Jessica is: Rich. God beholds. The daughter of Shylock in Shakespeare’s play ‘The Merchant of Venice’.
Rich? If only, ha…
How I got my name
I was named after my great grandmother, Jessica Joy Gerretson. And no, my middle name is not Joy. Thank goodness haha!
So yeah. NOW YOU KNOW.
ooh interesting post! I just looked up my name and this is what google says:
Melanie is a feminine given name derived from the Greek μελανία (melania), “blackness” and that from μέλας (melas), meaning “dark”.
So yes, I am very dark and mysterious *waggles eyebrows*
Great post, Jessi! <33
I think it’s really sweet that you’re named after your great-grandmother. I’m not named after anyone, which is okay. My name’s Quinn, and I like how unique it is, and I like that it’s Irish, but I wish it were a bet more feminine.
Maybe “rich” is a prediction of the future? ;)
I looked at mine, and I guess if I trace back the English use of the name Kayla several jumps it’s actually a form of Katherine, which is taken from a Greek word that can be traced back to Hecate. Which is pretty badass, since she’s one of my favorite Greek gods :D Kayla can also be traced back in the Yiddish and Hebrew languages, translating to “crown of laurel” in the end. Also awesome!
Fun post! I know originally I was supposed to be named Margaret after my dad’s mom. But my mom changed her mind and named me Lisa Marie. Not sure why, but I say it was because of Lisa Marie Presley.
Also, I tagged you in the Opposite Book Tag. You can check out my post HERE.
My name means “pure,” apparently. It actually fits me a little! :D
I wasn’t named after anyone. My mom said she spotted the name Kaitlin in the credits of a tv show and thought it was really pretty.
LOL I remember that for likie a year I was OBSESSED with names. Mine means glory of the people (what a lie lol)
My name means “pure” since it’s derived out of Katherine. I think I was named after my aunt’s doll. I KNOW, RIGHT?? I kind of just stared at my parents when they told me that. That was the depth of their imaginations at the time?! lol But then…I’m child number 5 so maybe they were just running low. Heheh!
Although the “pure” thing is actually hilarious, because I’m the most evilly sarcastic person I know. x)
[…] Jessi wants to know about the origin of your blog name. […]
I’ve always known the meaning of my name…which is (sigh, boring), Fossilized Tree Resin Or Color Orange/Red. The origin of the name Amber is English.
I got my name because my mom always had other girls in her class named Amber, she liked the name and decided she would name me that. I like my name, I just wish there was an actual meaning and it wasn’t an object. Lol.
