Names

over the last few months i have read a number of posts about names...

jewish tradition says that you don't name a child after someone who is alive, but a loved relative who has passed - hence, i was named after my mom's grandmother

at some point or another i have researched the meaning of my name... lets just leave it at my name was derived from a kings name, was feminized, and is a "strong" name

some names have meaning, some are made up - such as those in inner cities that start w/ "la'______" and "sound neat" to the parents who created it...

then there are our porn names, which has many formulas... my 2 favorite are "your first pet & first street names" making me "annie 23rd" or "your first pet & mom's maiden name" making me "annie brown".... neither seems porn inspiring to me.. but what do i know...

earlier today i was bored, so i was randomly reading blogs and i found a quiz to find out your pirate name



My pirate name is:


Mad Ethel Flint



Every pirate is a little bit crazy. You, though, are more than just a little bit. Like the rock flint, you're hard and sharp. But, also like flint, you're easily chipped, and sparky. Arr!

Get your own pirate name from piratequiz.com.

so what does your name say about you???

    Every pirate is a little bit crazy. You, though, are more than just a little bit. You can be a little bit unpredictable, but a pirate's life is far from full of certainties, so that fits in pretty well. Arr!

    Sweet, now I need a puffy shirt and some big gold earrings.

  • My name, Scott, has about the weakest meaning ever. It simply means "of Scotland" not too inspiring at all.

    Thanks for breaking the comment ice on my blog. The snap eh? Interesting...

  • actually perci, there was a huge family fight about me "getting" my name.... my mom's cousin had a baby a week before me and finally caved and gave her daughter a simliar name - NOT the one i have...

    TO THIS DAY my family tells this stories at family gatherings.. and to this day my mom's cousin gets pissed off that i have "the name" and her daughter doesn't

    As for the meaning of my name - i have done the name research myself...
