6 Fun Sites To Find Out What Your Name Says About You

Ads by Google

what does my name say about meRecently, the following story headline went through the German media: “Kevin is not a name, it’s a diagnosis” (Freakonomics, NY Times).

According to one study, elementary school teachers are prejudiced against pupils based on their first names. Non-traditional names are associated with bad behavior. Previous studies demonstrated that bearers of trendy names are generally from an underclass background. This may indeed account for their bad behavior, but seen in context it also has dramatic consequences. Not only do these kids live a less privileged life, but they must also disprove prejudice and convince teachers of their abilities with much better performances than the next kid that carries a traditional name. Cruel childhood.

Maybe Shakespeare set the stage for it when he wondered, “What’s in a name?” It looks like names do have an impact on their bearers or on how people receive them.

So, I started to wonder what does my name say about me? There are a number of sites out there that offer to calculate and predict your character, attractiveness, and luck. Please take this with a grain of salt, though. It’s just fun!

What Your Name Says About You Quiz

what does my name say about meBlogthings.com has a much simpler tool to analyze your name. You really just need to know your name.

If my name was Tina, which is only part of the truth, I would be dynamic but aggressive, artistic but extreme, unconventional but unstable, and finally ambitious but stubborn.

Fortunately, this analysis is not the whole story.

What Does My Name Say About Me

On Anvari.org someone posted an alphabetical chart that allows to compile the analysis based on the letters in your name. So for example our lovely editor can be characterized like this:

M – Success comes easily to you.

A – You can be very quiet when you have something on your mind.

R – You are a social butterfly.

K – You like to try new things.

I rather let him be the judge.

What Your Name Means

what does my name meanPaul Sadowski provides another numerology tool, which returns the most thorough report in this list.

The analysis includes a summary of what your name means in different languages or cultures, your expression or destiny number, your soul urge number, your inner dream number, and detailed information regarding what this means.

The note below the name field is most interesting:

Most authorities agree that the full birth name as recorded on your birth certificate is the name that must be used for all calculations involving name. Nicknames, changed names including marriage name changes do not dilute the importance of the name given to you by your parents.

Behind the Name

This page finally is a little more serious. It’s actually based on historical records that reveal the origin and eventually meaning of your first name.

For example Felicitas is the female version of Felix, the origin of the name is Spanish, and it essentially means “happy”.

Now that was a very common example, but did you know Ryan was Irish and means “little king”?

Your Name Here

At last, here is a humorous approach, brought to you by The Weekly.

According to this page, the literal meaning of Daniel, a foreigner who loves adverbs and whose nickname is characterized by desperate self-invention, is “born covered with fur”. The summary concludes with Daniel’s motto: “Does this look like a rash to you, or is it just where I’ve been scratching?”

This Daniel is of course a fictional character. No offense please!

In a more serious article the Scotsman.com News reported what people see in names. Apparently, names like Elizabeth or William express success, while a Jack or an Emma are percieved as happy individuals, and Sarah or Chris are thought to be most attractive.

    I have always had a certain amount of difficulty with the application of numerology to names (how can your name affect who or what you are?). However, there is no doubt in my mind that the numbers themselves have power and, in my field, which is the tarot, understanding the meanings of numbers can help you understand what the tarot itself is trying to tell you. We have done more on this, if you are interested, at http://www.tarotcardmeaningsonline.com/numerology

    o……………k, kind of accurate but still untrue

  • Jonny | thelifthing.com

    Thanks for the post. I am off to check the meaning of my name now.

    Thanks for the great links Tina. I was surprised to discover astrobix. I am a firm believer in astrlogy and visit many sites regularly, but I hadn’t seen this one before. It has lots of great content on vedic astrology.

    McAfee Site Advisor (I’m required to have it at work) totally blocked Astrobix.com: “When we tested this site we found links to itbix.com, which we found to be a distributor of downloads some people consider adware, spyware or other potentially unwanted programs.”

      thanks for the feedback!

      Astrobix.com is the first site in this list, Numerology Name Analysis. Neither Astrobix nor itbix have a bad WOT rating and I didn’t notice any suspicious activities. However, it’s better to be cautious.
