Welcome Kelly glad you joined us!!!
I have no idea what a froup loop is???? thats a new one to me!!!!

Sally believe it or not I googled religious name meanings and it was on one of those sites!! I think I will just go with the original meaning I found....helper of men.....some how that doesn't sound quite so scandalous!!!

I like the idea of asking your mom how they named you....My dad wanted the name XAnne for a girls name.....pretty sure I would have gotten a pole at some point for a birthday gift with that kind of a name and Buckingham Christopher if I was a boy....thank GOD I wasn't a boy and that mom chose my name!! I would have been Bucky Bennett....are you kidding me???? why do parents do such awful things to their children!!!!! I would have spent all of my school years getting my butt kicked for having such a ridiculous name!!! I just made a note to self to thank my mom for choosing my name when I talk to her!!!

Hope everyone had a wonderful day!!!

Cassondra- that is toooo funny. I'm glad you're a girl & that your mom named you too. (That sounds really funny )

I was told that if I had been a boy I would have been Junior. At the time I think I was 9 & I thought "Junior" was an awful name. Little did I know that it meant Charles Phillip Kelch Jr. But they named me Charlene after my dad and Phillis for a middle name- thankfully NOT the feminine of Phillip which is Phillipa. However since Phyllis Diller was popular at the time- I did get a lot of ribbing about my middle name. Did you know she had been a Playboy Centerfold? When I told kids that who tried to tease me- they didn't know what to say and would walk off. Who got the last laugh there huh?

Froup Loop=inside joke from the Scrap Pack Challenge (a challenge that no longer happens, but it was when everyone who signed up was sent the same pack of items that you had to use on your LO & you could only add ink, paper, & photos to create your LO, then the LOs were submitted anonymously and judged & a prize was awarded--super fun challenge, but it is TONS of work to host). So when the challenge was ending, a bunch of us regulars got together & formed a very informal critique group so we could stay in touch So it is the name of a group of ladies on sb.com who keep in touch from the Scrap Pack challenge.

Thanks- that makes sense- I can imagine that would be a lot of work.

I was named after my father's cousin Sallie, only my name ends in "y" vs 'ie' because that is the "hillbilly" way of spelling it!!! parents were funny years ago!

My name means "longed for" in French. I think my Mom just thought it was a pretty name. I'll have to ask her. I know my middle name (Lee) came about because those are her favorite jeans xD. She was 17 when she had me so I guess that kind of makes sense since all 17 yr old girls think about is boys and clothes lol.

Wow- very interesting why everyone is named what they were named. There is so much more behind the name than what some site says your name means. I think the story is all about what our parents were thinking at the time. Maybe we should also do a page why we chose our children's names to give to them- so they know & in case we aren't here to ask. Like if I didn't already know- I may not ever since my mom has advanced Alzheimer's now.

I found out thru looking at several sites that Charlene also came from Old German and French as well as the regularly posted English. From the French it means Small Beauty. I prefer the Old German & English= manly, free man- in other words WOMAN as the feminine version of Charles.

Here is a site I found for getting the meaning, usage, etc of a name that is easy to use without a bunch of fluff:

http://www.babynamespedia.com/

Gives the pronunciation, meaning, origin & alternate spellings and similar names. Seems more in tune to research I did years ago.

My name, Megan, means pearl. It comes from Welsh (ultimately Greek) and is a form of Margaret. It hit its highest popularity in 1985 at the #10 girls name. (I was born in 1986.)

My mom liked to watch movies and would look at the credits for names she liked when she was preggo. She saw "Meg Ryan" and liked the name Meg which led to me being named Megan. My middle name, Ann, is my Mother and Aunt's middle name, so I got it b/c it was my mom's.

So my full name is Kimberly Clark - seriously believe that my parent named me because they turned over a Kleenex box - lol.... no it was because my uncle was dating a Kimberly at the time and my mom liked the sound

Great link Char....I am so excited everyone is really getting into this challenge....I had to read your post twice Kimberly and was cracking up about you saying your name being from a box of kleenex...that would be worse than Buckingham!!!

Hope everyone had a great day!!!
