What’s In a Name


A friend/blogger mentioned something nice about me. It made me think how people see and view me differently than I do myself.

What is in a name, what does it mean?                                                                           popular names

Mine is Teresa. It means saint. Really? Me, a saint? LOL

Well here are a few names that popped up in my mind. I did not intentionally leave anyone out. If you would like to share the meaning of your name, please do.

I located these definitions from the internet. You may have a different one than I mentioned. After all, we all know the internet is sometimes full of hog wash.

No matter what our name stands for we are proud of who we are, just like Proud Mary.
