    Behind the Name - the Etymology and History of First Names

    What is the meaning of your name?
    You don't need to post your name just its meaning.

    I have two names one in Hebrew the other is Biblical. The first means queen and the other princess.
    I must say I didn't choose them, so don't think me an egoist. :lol:
