    As for my first name, I hate it with a passion. Someone rename me please ): Something more fitting
    Ditto! My first name is Britni (pronounced like Brittany), I looked it up and it just means "one from Britain"... boooooooring!

    My name is Cassie, which means absolutely nothing, as far as I know.
    But my horse's name is more interesting, lol, his name is Shea (shay) which is Gaelic and means hawk-like - fraceful, free, courageous.

    Jennifer means White Wave in Welsh...
    That's my name, too.
    Only I go by Jeni. Only called Jennifer on the first day of school and by my parents.

    Jubilee means "joy" or "celebration" which I think fits considering how amazingly happy I was when I got her. (She's my first horse!) Her name is Hebrew. (Found this info on babynames.com) Lol.

    Wow a variety of meanings of everyone's name. It's amazing where our names originate from isn't it?

    Tamma, I do understand what you were saying in your post and I respect your opinions there.

    Please note: You don't have to reveal your real name, the reason for thread it to know the meaning of your name and not your real name.

    So even if you don't wish to reveal it for whatever reason it is entirely your choice, the thread does not require you to reveal any of your identity.

    It's just to find interesting meanings some people have .

    Regards

    I think I explained the thing so much because the kid inside me says that "you can reveal it, it's very improbable that something happens" but my rational sense says that it wouldn't be wise.

    I just tried to shut up my inner kid and explain myself why it wouldn't be wise

    My dad's name is Páll, and I'm his daughter (dóttir) Literally my last name means Small's daughter, Páll=small
    If my dad's name was... Arngrímur, my name would be Signý Arngrímsdóttir.. So our last names don't really mean anything. I am related to 2 other Pálsdóttirs and they are my sisters.

    It can be kinda confusing for foreigners when there is a family of 4 and none of them have the same last name.. e.g. Grandpa on one side is named Atli so the father is Atlason, grandpa on the other side is named Arnar so the mother is Arnarsdóttir, then they have the daughter Pétursdóttir because of the fathers name, and the son Pétursson
    I know a few of these kinds of families
    That is really fascinating Sis and you did a great job explaining it
