Today is “What’s In A Name?” Day.
A day where, if you don’t know, you find out what your name means.
We found out that a lot of names have different interpretations. For instance, in one book, Samuel means “His Name Is God.”
I raised an eyebrow and kept looking until I found what I had thought it meant, “God heard.”
Katarina means pure. “What’s my middle name mean though?” she asked.
“A sea of bitterness, beauty, and grace,” I answered.
She stared at me. “So I’m a pure sea of bitterness, beauty, and grace?”
I shrugged. “I guess so.”
She smiled. “I’ll take it.”
Anabelle, in one book, meant grace and beauty, while in another it meant “favored by God.”
She liked them all.
