Who are you named after, and what is the significance behind your name?
Hello Lee, I am named after a lady my parents knew before I was born. Unfortunately, I never met her. I have had no luck when researching the significance of Shasme'. Any clue?
My first name came from the Bible. My middle name is my Granny's middle name. I'm not really sure of the significance. I guess because the Bible and my Granny are both holy.
My name is Marites (actually a nickname) and my ma named me after her favourite Filipino actress.
Based on my middle name (Jane) I was named after my mothers' beloved aunt who passed away shortly before I was born. My first name "Dana" has been originated as meaning "from Denmark" (super interesting) but also in Greek it means "mother of all gods". I prefer the latter.
I actually three first names- James comes from my granddad who was also called James. My first middle name is Patrick - which is my dad's name, and my final midde name is Marsh- which is my mother's maiden name.
My parents said they just liked my name so I guess there is no significance. We chose our kids first names' this way, too. We just liked them! However, we gave our children more meaningful middle names. I actually wrote a hub about it last week, Baby Names: Meaningful Middle Names. It details how and why we chose each of our 5 children's middle names.
Packer comes from the old English for "packer of wool." And Alastar is old Celtic for "defender of men."

Inspired by lj_bot on the Live Journal website, I reworded this person's question of "Name That Baby". As a baby you were given a first name most likely by your parents. What name would you have chosen to call yourself? My name Jane was my mother's middle name selected by my father....
