What's in a Name?
Your name is your identity. It is how you refer to yourself and how other's refer to you.
How did you get your name and what does it mean?
Your first name is usually chosen by your parents when you are born. Many parents use baby name books to choose your name, or pass a first name along that has been in your family history.
Most first names have meanings. You can find out what your first name means by checking one of the many name meaning generators online.
My first name is Wendy. According to the name generators it means:
WENDY (female) First used in J. M. Barrie's 'Peter Pan' in 1904. It was from the nickname fwendy "friend", given to the author by a young friend.
Another neat thing you can do with your name is find out how it might influence your life. The What's in YOUR Name site offers analysis of your name. Here is some of why mine said:

The name of Wendy creates a very aggressive and independent nature, one with big ambitions, giving you original, progressive, large-scale ideas, salesmanship and promotional ability as well as the excellent business judgment which enables you to gain the financial accumulation to which you feel entitled.
I am not sure I'd consider myself like the above description but those who know me might agree with it.
You have a versatile, restless nature, and could do any job well, although you would not like to do menial tasks. You are seldom satisfied and are always seeking something new. However, you do not know the meaning of relaxation, for when supposedly resting, your mind is forever active, planning out some new project or seeking new ways to improve your present enterprise.
