    What is the meaning of your First name?

    I'm surprised some people don't know the meaning of their names and some names actually bring bad luck.
    Mine means light.  (Elena)

    Laurel means 'victory.'  My name hearkens back to the first Olympic Games when athletes were adorned with laurel wreaths.  As an aside, it is not advisable to rest on one's laurels!

    My name means "favored grace." I actually read the story of Hannah in the Bible the other day, so it's funny that I see this question. But I had always known it meant grace, but never knew why. It is because in the Bible, Hannah prays to God for a child, and he finally blesses her with one. So the favored grace part makes sense to me now.

    Petra means “stone” and implies strength and endurance. Many people have a problem with their names (especially as children), but I always liked mine and I think it fits me well.
