It is very easy to see as far as someone takes apparent for real, illogically bases his judgement on a single fact and jumps into final conclusions without any scientific inquiry

i'm pretty sure that my name, levi, is hebrew and means "joined in harmony".
nulnuk, if you don't mind, i'd love to see my name in hebrew...
José = the same as the English "Joseph", coming from Hebrew. I don't know the exact meaning, but according to what I've read, it's related to adding, increasing, tagging, enlarging etc. (NulNuk can probably be more precise here.) I got that as a second name for two reasons... When my mother was pregnant, my grandmother used to pray for St. Joseph for everything to be alright with us, and then, completely unexpectadly, I ended up being born on St. Joseph's Day (19th March). Don't ever call me "Zé" though, as I hate it to death!...
CHRISTOPHER m English
Means "bearing Christ", derived from Late Greek Christos combined with pherein "to bear, to carry". Christopher was the legendary saint who carried the young Jesus across a river. He is the patron saint of travellers. Another famous bearer was Christopher Columbus, the explorer who reached the West Indies in the 15th century.
MORRIS m English
Medieval form of MAURICE
MAURICE m English, French
From the Roman name Mauricius, which derives from MAURUS. Saint Maurice was a Christian Roman soldier from Egypt. He and the other Christians in his legion were supposedly massacred by emperor Maximian for refusing to worship Roman gods. Thus, he is the patron saint of infantry soldiers. Also, Maurice of Nassau, the prince of Orange, was a military commander from the Netherlands who helped establish the Dutch Republic.
