I was born in late at the end of April. My parents saw beautiful green leaves outside. Then they named me Midori. I have a sister and she and I are twins. My sister's name is "Yoko", and "yo (葉）" means leaf.
I like this story and my name.
I know that in italy, that's in the region Emilia, a person has a name meaning "I didn't want you [to be born]" = "Antavleva" in regional dialectLauura wrote: I don't think there are names that mean things like "he who is good for nothing" or "the one we're all fed up with", don't you think?
having a female form can be annoying for male children here . Most of our names have both forms when taken from male names, but obviously it doesn't often happen the opposite [I never heard Margherito o Roso for instance, but honestly, they look like very ugly to me.]Nero wrote:My name is Thomas, and my parents only picked it because it didn't have a female form (Alex -> Alexandra, Carl -> Carla, Thomas -> ?)
Franks were a germanic tribe which settled in France but they were not Celts. France bears a name which could be fit for the Dutch, I think, since the dutch are descendents from the Franks who installed in the zones nowadays inhabitated by Flemish and Dutch .The name France was given for all the territory subjected to the Franks Empire including the modern France,and then Netherlands, Belgium, Germany,Switzerland, Austria, Slovenia, Northern Italy and part of Spain but the core of the Franks was in the Netherlands-Belgium, as linguistic scholars have studied that dutch came from Lower-FranconianFrancy wrote:My full name, Francesca, means "free of spirit and state" It was the name the Latin gave to the people living in France at that time (the celts) when they weren't still under the Latin dominion... I like it very much!!!!

Gormur wrote:The boy's name Lance is of French origin. From Lanzo (Old German) "land". Nickname of Lancelot. Not related to the medieval jousting weapon. Lantz is a Yiddish name meaning "lancet." Cyclist Lance Armstrong; singer Lance Bass.
Lance has 3 variant forms: Lantz, Lanzo and Launce.
I hate my name, no one calls me by it if they know me. I wish I knew the meaning of my last name.
