    Default What does your name mean?

    Well, you don't have to include your real name, but it is interesting to see what names mean. Mine means "he who supplants". Interestingly, it is of Hebrew origin.

    Note: If anyone wishes to talk about their (current) username, please post in this thread.

    That's Jacob, right?

    I'm Israeli so I know Hebrew...and, in fact, my name is Hebrew too...

    Your Hebrew name would be Yaakov, which looks like this:

    יעקב

    mine is Eliana, which means, "My God Has Answered", which is...
    אליענה

    No it isn't. It's a variation of that name, I forgot to add.

    REBECCA

    Gender: Feminine

    Usage: English, Italian, Swedish, Biblical, Biblical Latin

    Pronounced: rə-BEK-ə (English), re-BEK-kah (Italian) [key]
    From the Hebrew name רִבְקָה (Rivqah), possibly meaning "a snare" in Hebrew, or perhaps derived from an Aramaic name. This was the name of the wife of Isaac and the mother of Esau and Jacob in the Old Testament. It came into use as a Christian name after the Protestant Reformation, and it was popular with the Puritans in the 17th century.

    Yay, this sounds like fun. I don't mind sharing my name with you guys.

    It's Tanja (pronounced Tanya). Its roots go back to Russia and it's a shorter version of the Russian, very popular name Tatjana. The name got known in Europe because of a saint called Tatiana who died in 200. She was a noble born christian, who worked as a deaconess in Rome's congregation. She died a martyr death after refusing to sacrifice to other gods from other religions. The name got more and more usage, because in Russia it's common to name a child after a saint.

    THOMAS
    Gender: Masculine
    Usage: English, French, German, Dutch, Scandinavian, Greek, Biblical, Biblical Latin, Biblical Greek
    Other Scripts: Θωμας (Greek)
    Pronounced: TAHM-əs (English), TOM-əs (English), to-MA (French), TO-mahs (German, Dutch), tho-MAHS (Greek) [key]
    Greek form of the Aramaic name תָּאוֹמָא (Ta'oma') which meant "twin". In the New Testament this was the name of the apostle who initially doubted the resurrected Jesus. According to tradition he was martyred in India. Due to his renown, the name came into general use in the Christian world.
    In England the name was introduced by the Normans and became very popular due to Saint Thomas Becket, a 12th-century archbishop of Canterbury and martyr. Another notable saint by this name was the 13th-century Italian philosopher and theologian Thomas Aquinas, who is regarded as a Doctor of the Church. Other famous bearers include philosopher Thomas Hobbes (1588-1679), American president Thomas Jefferson (1743-1826), novelist Thomas Hardy (1840-1928), and inventor Thomas Edison (1847-1931).

    Epic.

    Take a wild guess at what my real name is.

    Here's its meaning (and the hint as well): it came from one of the 12 Apostles of the Catholic Church. It means "the gift of the Lord" and is of Hebrew origin.

    Edit: only 2 of my friends here know what my real name is (Senna and Takoto).

    If you put my name together (and switch my first and middle name) I'm a joyous snare of the hills.

    But my parents never really paid attention to meaning.
