What’s in a Name? Do our names influence our Destiny?
When a child is born, one of the most important things is to give him/her a name. Some parents have the name before the child is born, some leave it until after their little Angel has arrived.
Obviously there is no rule about giving a child a name, so people can give their child whatever name they please. Some children are named:
- after the place where they were conceived. E,g Paris, India, Brooklyn.
- after someone special in the family or someone special they know.
- after a special person in the Bible or Koran. E.g Esther, Mary, Ibrahim, Joseph.
- or their favourite Celebrity etc.

ツ★ A Dad actually calls his child "Facebook".
It’s always nice to give a child a name that has meaning. For some names, the meaning is obvious e.g Joy, Hope, Sunday, Lucky, Ruby, Precious, Rose or like those above. Several other names have meanings but you might have to check it up. Example calling a boy Jabez – Jabez actually means “sorrow”. Not an advisable name to give a child. The child may end up never being happy in life – very unlucky.
