    My given name is Georgianna and it's been handed down through about six generations of my family. There's always been at least one of us. I read somewhere that George meant "farmer" and Anna meant "Saintly," so I reckon I'm a saintly farmer. Or not. smile

    I like finding out the meanings of names.
    My name (Zoey) is the Greek meaning of life :-)

    I believe names can tell something about the person, and they show the life philosophy of people who carry them on. My name is "蕙", English pronunciation "Hui". It means cymbidium orchid. Wild ones lives in quiet valleys, fragrant, and elegant. Ancient Chinese admired it.
