Have you ever researched your own name? I have and it was fun and enlightening. In fact I did write a hub about it, but of course won't post it here. But the fun of it was learning that my name is fairly common all over the world, even though it's sometimes pronounced a bit different. And that there's an art glass factory that carries my name, but only because it's the name of the village in France where it's located. All sorts of fun facts made my day while writing the piece. You should try it some time.
I have never done a formal study like thing, but I have read several times that Beth means "house" (I hope it doesn't stand for "as big as a...") But it basically is House of God or also, God is my oath. I like these very much though "House of God" is very sobering and I'd like to dwell on that quite a bit more.
Your name apparently means, "grace" is that right?
Yes Sed-me, "grace" is what my name means. Beth, meaning House of God is sobering, isn't it? But then, it's a shortened version of Elizabelth, from the Hebrew Elishaba. I think names and their origins are so interesting. I also had my name in actual Hebrew on my page, but it was evidently deleted, I guess for PC reasons? Yochanan is my Hebrew name in our language.
The name Anne means full of grace. I always wanted an Annabella...graceful beauty. I'm very into the meanings of names. My sadness is that so many wonderful names have become so common. They've sort of lost their shine. Liam is a wonderful name, I think. I like Irish names too. Erin is a wonderful name. This is, believe it or not, one of my favorite topics.
Mason, Daniel, Emily, Benjamen, Chloe, Zoe, Christian, Penelope... good ones. I like fun ones too... I know the stars name their kids some stupid names, but Gwyneth Paltrow named her kid Apple and I actually think it's kinda cute.
He sure is purrdy. I don't know his name either. Purdy suits him fine, I think and oddly enough when trying to call him Purdy to describe him as lovely with my country bumpkin accent, the mysterious "it" that corrects grammar and such capitalizes it. Coincidence? I think not!
You mentioned (or someone did) Gwyneth. I like that name very much.
"In the 1611 KJ New Testament the name Yahshua (Yehoshua) appeared originally wherever the Messiah was spoken of. Yehoshua means Yehovah is Salvation. Later the Messiah's name was replaced with Iesus...
