Quiz: What Does Your Name Mean?

What is uniquely you about your name?

It’s hard to understate how important your name is. After all, your name was probably carefully chosen for you – possibly even months or years before you were born. Your name is often the first impression others have of you, and often it’s an impression that’s hard to shake. Your name is who you are – one of the few things that truly makes you uniquely you.

I have been interested in the psychology and perception of names for sometime now. There is just so much to absorb with each name: its uniqueness or commonness, the first letter, the last letter, its origin, famous people with the same name… For a quiz that tells everyone something about their names, I didn’t know where to start. Then it hit me. Just think about the letters. Each letter means something.

So I wrote What Does Your Name Mean? with the letters of your name in mind. What do they each stand for? This quiz will give you an adjective for each letter in your name. It’s a very simple idea, but it’s also a very profound one. This is the most popular quiz I have ever written for Blogthings

. Take What Does Your Name Mean? to find out what your name truly stands for, and comment below to let me know what you get. I’m genuinely curious to see how your first name makes you uniquely you.

If you’re anything like those who have taken What Does Your Name Mean? before you, I think you’ll be delighted by your result. At first, the words representing your name may seem discordant, but I promise you they will make sense if you think about them for a while. What do you think? What word in your outcome best represents you? And what word in your outcome may be a bit of a surprise?
