Personal: FAVOURED

Hey lovelies
If there is something in this world you should all pay attention to, it is your name(s). What do you answer to?
Even the bible says "A good name is better than riches" (pun intended) Y'all know I like to make you laugh :)
Seriously tho, when you have kids, spend time to choose their names well, it does matter.


Anyway most of you do not know but my middle name is 'Favour' and I just feel like that my name has been unlocking favours for me.
Erm that being said, I cannot marry a man that is bearing any funny name. Keep your name, thanks!
No offence, but seriously some names are not supposed to be borne by normal people. For example if your name directly translates to failure, why on earth are you still bearing it?

Or maybe someday, after giving birth to one lovely damsel like that {Oh yelz it has to be :)} the father will now decide to give her one funny name because he's the father? Sorry, it just cannot happen
Not my baby :)

I used to thank God for my parents, our names are great.
I think it is because they understand that good names are good because they have good ones themselves.
My father's name is Bernard which means brave
My mother's name is Gloria, same thing as Glory
My first name Jane means gracious gift of God. According to my parents, when they realized I'd be born on the 1st of January, they couldn't think of any other perfect name.
However years after I realized I didn't have any native name, I pressured my mum to give me one and she called me 'Idara' which means Joy. Nobody calls me this anyway, sometimes I even forget that it is supposed to be my name. I virtually used to beg even my mum to remember to call me that LOL
Anyway, I gave up on that a long time ago
My father calls me Queen
All of them, amazing names, as in God bless them for always thinking of a good name to give me :)
My sister's name is Blessing and boy, that girl is nothing but a blessing. My father calls her gold.
My brother's name is Akan which means Victor.
And my father calls him 'fine boy', even when he is very angry with him. "Fine boy, shut up! What I'm saying is..." Hahaha so funny when he's supposed to be angry and the nice name still comes out LOL

Let's talk, how important is your name to you?

P.s The amazing things that can happen in 2013, now y'all know my real names :)

Love always
JB

  2. Yours is the opposite of most people. Whilst most (read 'me') have numerous native names and not a single English name, you have English names and no native name hmm

  4. umm yea names they say have a way of affecting you somehow but i still regard it as a Myth. why? My name according to Greek mythology means "Thracian God Of Wine".. so i guess we all at this point expect some drunkard.
    News flash: don`t even drink alcohol. Guess as individuals,we play a major role in that affect aspect of our being :)

    Ps:I Love My Name :D

  6. I think names does play a crucial role in people's lives. It's something that you carry with you. People know you by your name, whatever it is. I thank God my parents gave me the names I'm called today.

    No matter what the day is, my mom never goes without saying 'Oluwaseun', which means 'thank you God.'

    The meaning behind names is indeed important. It's also spiritual.

  10. Wow, Idara, em, Jane, lol, it had to take this post for me to discover that you are an Akwa Ibom or Cross River babe. Abadie? Lol. I totally agree with you on the name thing. Names play a vital role in our lives. For instance, my husband's family name is Idionkanta, meaning a tornado or whirlwind. He told me that God led him to change that surname and substitute with King, and he did an official name change, and dropped the tornado surname. His life experienced more progress after he did that. This happened before we got married anyway, but I can assure you, I would have still married him, nevertheless, hehehehehehe. His first name is Ubong, by the way, which means, glory. My own name- Unyimeobong, means, by God's agreement.
    We have carefully and prayerfully chosen our children's names as well because the names are a declaration of destiny. My first, Adora, bears a latin name which is derived from the word, Adorable, and means, 'beloved of the Lord,' then comes Jamon, Hebrew for, 'the right hand of favor,' Atara, meaning, 'crown of blessing,' Hebrew as well, and our little princess of faith, Sarah. As we gave those names, we made prophetic declarations into their destinies which will speak as time goes by.
    Thanks for this-thought provoking piece.

    1. I think your name stems from floral, Latin name for flower. It should mean something beautiful, something that blossoms and is really special
      I like your names :)
