What’s in a name?   Leave a comment

Over the weekend I was looking at various websites which help you chose names for babies by showing them how the name looks up against you surname and telling you a little about them like the ‘meaning’ of the name and where the name originates.

Sadly I didn’t find my name ‘The Cat’ on any of them a terrible oversight that I hope is rectified soon, it should be I sent emails of complaint to all of the sites I visited.

Getting Out Cover

As my attention started to meander away from my original purpose, these sites are rather boring after all, I found some interesting meanings for some names.

Below is a couple of examples.

Did you know that Barack means ‘blessed.’

Barack Obama

And nicer still the president’s second name Hussein means ‘Handsome One’ which is pretty cool!

I then looked at the first name of the leader of the UK government, his name for those of you not familiar with this person, is David Cameron, and for those of you not familiar with the UK it’s a small overcrowded place in the North Atlantic.

David means ‘Beloved.’

David Cameron

Sadly Cameron means ‘Bent Nose!’
