    ...after a nice conversation with JoCose over the scabillion spellings of my name, and how NO ONE gets it right, we began discussing name origins/meanings, a bit...and I thought it called for a thread! :)

    So...what does your first name mean? Where does it originate? (I'm gonna have to look mine up, so I'll get back to you!)

    I also understand that some are reluctant to share their first names, so, you can tell us what your username means instead, if ya want! :)

    Jonathan is my first name, and it's from the Bible. Jonathan was David's best friend, and it means "Gift of God".

    great name.... love the story about him and davids friendship... if you take after the biblical jonathan... you should be a wonderful friend...a true gift from God..!!


    talk about a real oxymoron...my real name means "full of grace"...

    i was thinking full of something...but not grace, i cant walk and chew gum at the same time....

    people refer to me as china in a bull shop... i mean a bull in a china shop..!!

    Mine means Victorious People ... and since it's plural, I'm gonna assume that Calliope's assessment of me was dead on ...

    I have no idea what I'm victorious over because I sure do battle a lot ...

    My (real) English name means "God is salvation" huh, news to me.

    My Hebrew name means "A gift from God." I was named after my great-grandfather, but coincedentily, I was a "surprise" (note that my sister says I was an accident), so my mom says that since I'm the only boy and she always wanted a boy, I was truly a gift. She didn't know the meaning when they named me.

    As for my username, I have mentioned it in another thread, but jocose means funny and witty

    Emily means "industrious, eager", and I think it's of Old German/Latin origin. (According to the internet). :)
