Does your Name reflect your persona?
should people change their names & why?
Many say what your called is who you are, is this true well in some cases it seems it is E.g my own name is NoorUlain Ali which means:Light of the eyes in Arabic & surname meaning sublime the most high' so do I live up to it ?
No, I don't think it reflects your person. You didn't pick the name and when your name was picked your personality was unknown to the world.
You don't have to live up to your name, or people named Jesus would have their hands full!
No I do not think your names reflects on who you are, you do that! I would never change my name, its me!
There are times that names of people reflect who they are, however there are many cases that it didn't.
And with regards to my name, Cathyrin, which means pure, well I could say that it reflects a bit but not that much.
We were given names at the point that we have no knowledge of anything for we are still babies. Our parents may have the meaning of our names in mind, which they want to reflect our personality when we grow up. Yet, it is not they who will decide who will we be in the future, it's us. So if we want to reflect our personality with our name meanings, then its always up to us.
I don't think a name can reflect your persona, my real name is Louise, meaning Famous In Battle. And that is very true of me, the funny thing is before I was born my parents were going to name the baby Lisa if it was a girl. Lisa means Consecrated to God, which is sort of like me because I have cheated death for 22 years, in spite of not being someone who goes to church. When I was born, my parents didn't think I looked like a Lisa so changed it to Louise.
As for changing your name, unless you are severely unhappy with it, or being stalked etc.. then I don't see the point.
Absolutely not. Name has nothing to do with the kind of person you are. However, If you are really unhappy with your name you can go for a new one.
I am by my self not sure, but my friends said that my name reflects my personal (and it is positives). So I do not think I should change my name.
the reason i asked is in my opinion a name is who you are i have seen people change names often there fore i was wondering what the world thought of this thank you everyone for answering.
a name is but a name, i know plenty of Chris' and none of them are like me
Some people think that names reflects who they are but that's not true, i have seen people with same name but behave differently.
Parents should be careful the names they give to their children. We know from a Christian perspective words have power. The names do contain power and it does affect children in their growing years. However, there are some names that do fit those who are called such names. It rhymes with their personality or character traits.
Also, it is important to note it is not in every case what you are called is who you are. Some names do not fit with some people when you look at the meaning of the names and the people who are called them. Therefore, it depends. You might be named in which case it will affect you, be called the name because they do rhyme with your personality or there is no relationship between the name and you.
