What does your name mean? We’ve all got one and we all use or hear it multiple times every day. However, have you ever stopped to think about what’s behind it? Well, some people have. Onomatologists focus their careers on looking into the meaning of names and where they come from.
But it’s not just Onomatologists who can study this fascinating subject. You can go to names.org, enter your name and learn about its origin, related titles, its popularity, and a whole lot more. Now, it’s worth noting that the origins of all words, not just names, are often a little unclear. For example, if you enter ‘Portia’, you’ll get mixed results including ‘an offering’, or ‘a brave young woman’.
So, you can never be 100% certain that an explanation is definitive. Fortunately, that’s part of the fun! When there’s a bit of uncertainty and speculation, you can go off in different directions and find weird and wonderful explanations for certain names. That’s what “Learn What Your Name Means Day” is all about. On March 5, everyone is encouraged to look into the origins of their name and others. It’s a bit of fun and can reveal some fascinating facts.
