It's been in the family a long time.
Derives from Persian word meaning "treasure keeper".
Something biblical, which makes no sense because my family has consisted of atheists for ages.

My dad liked it. All of you guys have cool reasons.

I swallow it whole, like a man.
First name: Catherine
Reason: None that im aware of

Middle Names: (shorten to) Maggi Lou
Reason: After each of my grans

Catherine: From the Greek meaning Pure
REASON: My grandmother always wanted a girl, and she got stuck with 4 boys; so my parents decided to let her pick my name.
ORIGINATES:The bible story of Abraham and Sarah
MEANING: Princess
My mum's favourite musical is Seven Brides for Seven brothers, and in it they name the children in alphabetical order with Biblical names. When she was pregnant with me she was watching it, and decided she really liked the name 'Hannah' and so here I am. I think it's quite a sweet origin :3
The will to neither strive nor cry,
The power to feel with others give.
Calm, calm me more; nor let me die
Before I have begun to live.

Arguments are to be avoided; they are always vulgar and often convincing.
parents saw it on a gravestone
means laughter
now extra flamey
Jack - It's a family name. Both my great-grandfathers were called Jack, as were a lot of their ancestors etc. My middle name, David, is what my parents were going to call their first-born, after their best friend. Unfortunately, my mum had a miscarriage when she was pregnant the first time. So they made it my middle name as a tribute to him.

Jack is, I believe, a medieval pet form of 'John', which itself means 'God is gracious'.

Man that's badass.

Because my grandma had to step in and have her way.
If my mom had her way, my name would have been Luke(Which is a damn good name)
The name is James. It was my father's father that he named me after.
Is it a bad thing if one of your testicles is larger then the other two?
My name is Dylan, and I do not know the exact reason why I was named Dylan. However, I do know that it means "of the sea" or "belonging to the sea" and that it also comes from some mythical origins meaning "God of the sea". Also, it originates from Welsh.

Obviously my parents hated the accident they had made and decided to punish the tiny sperm that managed to swim through and ruin their lives.
Name: Louise
reason: My mum liked the name
Meaning: Famous Woman Warrior (according to a keychain I got at an airport xD)
Origins: French, English, Dutch
" Did You know, in Tibet, if they want something, do you know what they do? They give something away."

"Do they ? That must be why they're such a dominant global power."
Keith. I was going to be named David, but my dad wanted something that was extremely simple I couldnt be made fun of for, or something. So David became my middle name.

Keith means Place of Battle. in some scottich or irish or cealtic heritage or something. It also means woodland, or forest in Gaelic terms
