Meanings of names.

edited December 1969 in Faith Issues
Hey Everyone,
I thought it would be cool if everyone would share what their own names mean. You could also say what u like or not like about your name or how you got to be named. If you don't know what ur name means maybe you can put a post and ask for help and maybe someone can help you out :)

Well, my name is Monica and it means "advisor".
I like my name a lot for a bunch of reasons and one reason is because I love the story of Saint Monica :)
I got to be named that because my mom asked an Abouna what I should be called and he first said I should be called Erene but my mom said that there was already an Erene in the family so she asked Abouna is my name could be Monica-Erene and he agreed but you know what... nobody calls me.. everyone just calls me Monica :)
Anyway, I thank God for being called Monica.. i think its nice :)
Peace and God bless all of you!


  • My name is Fadi and it means "the redeemer". I like it because it is one of the names of Jeus Christ, our redeemer. Unfortunantly it is too close to the word "fatty" in English which made for some pretty bad childhood memories :'( But, I wouldn't change it for the world.

    The Redeemer
  • Awww, Don't worry about it... Fady is a nice name and I know a lot of Fadys who are very successful people!
    Take care and God bless
  • well mine is Rita, and all it means is precious pearl, which is pretty but not too significant i guess lol, but i absolutely love st. Rita and she was an italian nun and there was also an italian nun that was a nurse when i was being delivered and for some reason i've always been fond of that connection there. I used to hate it but i guess everyone had a phase where they hated their names. and it reminds me of bread cuz i'm sure we're all familiar with pita lol. but i still love it and i wouldn't like it if people called me by something else. oh and a lot of ppl's mothers or grandmothers seem to also have that name which i love because i absolutely adore older generations

  • oh thats cool! Fady is becoming popular lol and Marianne is anice name...cuz my sisters name is that and it was close to the same story the same Abouna that named me nameed my sister and brother.. so we're like the three M's Maryan, Mike and me, Monica! :)
  • Maria, the latin name for st Mary is plural for "sea"
