It is a nickname for me given by my best friend.
Sounds very sophisticated, doesn’t it?
I feel like a mademoiselle with that name.
What's in a name?
Actually a name is not just a name.
All parents certainly have a big hope after their child’s birth by giving a meaningful name, which might influence the entire life of the kid.
In all parts of the world, the parents will usually name their children with a name of famous person, with a good name which has a good meaning or at least contain a good connotation.
Boys Name: Ethan, (origin: Hebrew), meaning: "firm" or "strong".
Girls Name: Mia, (origin: German), meaning: taken from the name “Amelia”: “Work of the Lord”.
A name: Joyce, chosen because the parents want her to be a joyful person along her life and brings cheerfulness to others.
In Java – Indonesia, the name of a child who often gets sick, will be changed:
* "Waras" (meaning: health, recover from sickness). Thus, usually the name seems to have the power of healing. The child gets well soon after getting the new name.
* “Slamet” (meaning: save), “Sugiharto” (meaning: lots of treasure), and many meaningful names are familiar for Javanese people.
A name is like a brand for goods. It represents the quality.
However, sometimes a name doesn’t match with the personality.
In real life, there are names that surprise us
because they don't seem to suit the person at all
In Philippine, there are so many men named “Jesus”, but they do not represent the character of Jesus which is full of love and kind, as stated in the Bible. Some are criminals, drunkards, robbers.
We must have self-respect with our names.
Once we ruin our names, nobody will ever trust us.
Our names are labels,
plainly printed on the bottled essence of our past behavior
