Strong Names

When choosing a name for their baby, many parents are primarily concerned with the resonance of sound. Some people are named after relatives, a famous person, their parent’s friend or even fictional characters. However, what actually matters a lot is the meaning of the word chosen. Every name has a certain image behind it, its own etymology and history. All the names that mean strong, for instance, share the concept of power, but each one is unique as it has its own unique origins.
Do you remember the moment when you found out the meaning behind your own name? Do you recall it now? Are you contented with it?
In his book Games People Play psychiatrist Eric Berne states that every person has a scenario of his own, and  one’s parents have a great role in “writing” it. A name can be a part of this scenario. Power names (words that mean strong) may affect your own sense of self in a very good way. That may be very important as we’re tied to our names for life.

    The moment a person understands that the meaning behind his name is “strong” he or she inevitably starts to ask himself many questions:

  • why did parents gave him this name?
  • were they concerned only about the resonance of sound, was it a “hereditary” name or did they actually understand that they chose a name meaning strong?

Most people perceive their names as authentic, but if a person feels that the name does not “suit” him, it may even happen that he decides to change it. There’s little chance that a person who has a name meaning strong would ever like to change it, as one could hardly imagine how such a positive word could have a bad influence on a person’s character or destiny.
