What does your name mean? Do you think it relates to you well?

Mine is something along the lines of "from the royal fortress meadow."

Mine, in my county, can mean "pigeon" or "chick". Well, when I was in middle school they often used me as a carrier pigeon to bring people back together... but I don't think it has anything to do with my name :P

Off topic, I shared a flat with a guy from Brittany for about 4 months. Possibly the most naturally cool guy I ever met, thought I'd share that...

I have Hebrew names that are my real names. My English names don't mean anything to me. My first name, in Hebrew, means belief or faith.

If I spell my name as my parents named me it's just the name of a flower. Now it's line in Spanish ;).

No one seem to be really sure of what Maria means though. Rebellious, something with the sea, loved, strong, gracious, sorrow, mistress, etc. I don't really know.

Nah, he was the chief opponent of Charlemagne an imperialistic king, hence he fought for the freedom of his people, against christianity. Nough said.

Off-topic much? You can ask me that question in the Sports Forum.

Oh, and my first name means "God is gracious" or something like that... But I was named after Joan Baez, with a more British/Breton spelling, so in my parents' mind it had nothing to do with religion. I am now a christian, though.
