What's in a name?

5.23.05

Do you know what your first name means? Middle name?

My real first name's meaning is "womanly." Real middle name's meaning is "bright." Elena is Spanish for my middle name. (I have dark hair, but no, I'm not Hispanic. Sorry to disappoint.)

Did you know that the Book of Revelation states that Christ-followers will receive new names, ones which no one knows now, written on white stones? I think they'll have something to do with our identities in Christ, but that's just my pet theory.

If I could select mine, it would be Chosen.


Do you know what your real name means? If so, you can share its meaning with us. (No revealing of the real name is necessary.) If your online pseudonym is an actual name and you'd like me to research its meaning for you, I'd be glad to do so.

Maybe you don't like the name your parents gave you. If you could change it, what would it be? (First or middle or both....whatever!)

For the Christians, if you could give yourself a new name that reflects your identity in Christ, what would it be?

Friendly reminder: Keep it safe for work!
