What Does Your Name Mean?
Hi everyone, Chris here! Last week, we've been talking about the meaning of different names. Many English family names come from a profession held by an ancestor. Cooper (made metal bands for barrels and wheels), Fletcher (made arrows), Smith (as in blacksmith), or my own, Fowler (bird catcher), are examples of this. Many given names have biblical or historical origins, and mean something in Greek or Hebrew. My name, Christopher is an example of that, coming from Greek and meaning 'bearer of Christ', as are names like Michael, which means in Hebrew 'Who is like God?'. So, what does your name mean?
