What does your name mean? Does it suit you? If you’re a blogger, how did you pick your blog title?
If you don’t know the definition of your name, I recommend you drop in to Urban Dictionary, which offers the latest, coolest, most flattering definitions of who your name says you are. For instance, take Julia (ahem):
“a name for girls. Most julia’s are artistic, smart, romantic, beautiful and also very charming. Julia’s can get whatever they want if they try. They can be very sexy so watch out! They are romantics and love old movies, art and books. they love old stuff! They usually aren’t very athletic but if a julia is athletic she’s kick butt! they have great fashion sense and usually look smokin’. A julia will most likely become a mother because they love kids. They are very successful in life and there is just something about them that draws people in. Also they are ah-mazing dancers!
– Julia roberts
– julia stiles
– julia meyerhoff
– julia schneiderman
– julia ormond
– julia de burgo”
Just get me a crown, will ya?
Much better than Dictionary.com, which says Julia is the male form of Julius, then bumps you to this:
“masc. proper name, from L. Julius, name of a Roman gens, perhaps a contraction of *Jovilios “pertaining to or descended from Jove.”
Ho hum, by jove.
From now on, signing my name, Smokin’
Speaking of names, celebrate a new blog name with me! Henceforth, Schrodinger’s Cat is Alive (my former blog name) will remain, alive and dead in it’s box, free for the taking by someone else worthy of such mathematical wonders. In it’s place: Scribbler’s Playhouse. That’s what really goes on here anyway. Thank you all you writers who drop in and egg me on, providing the impetus to come out as a writer. Turns out it’s nothing to be ashamed of.
If you’re busy this week and don’t have time to look up the etymology (love that word. Roll it around your tongue. Tastes sweet, doesn’t it?), I’ll look up your name for you. Promise to only tell you the good stuff about yourself, especially if you push the Follow button.
