What does the name mean?
The name is the most important component of the personality of the individual, because it has a strong impact on the peculiarities of character, behavior, addictions, health status and, as a result, on all subsequent life. No wonder that it is said that “as you call a boat, it will sail like this”.
And it really works!
For this reason, the question of choosing a name for your unborn baby should be approached with complete seriousness and responsibility. Now only very lazy people are not at all puzzled by the selection of a name when they are waiting for the birth of their child.
Wanting to better understand yourself or the person that interests you — refer to the characteristics of his (her) name and you will immediately understand a lot. Do not ignore the information you receive.
There are situations when a person wants to change his name given at birth, replacing it with another, more appropriate one. Is it worth it to decide on such changes or not — this is, of course, purely your own business.
Whatever it was, you still need tips on the characteristics of those or other names, as well as recommendations on this matter.
Name designation: what can they tell?
The child begins to hear his own name when he is not even able to get out of the crib and see his reflection in the mirror. Subsequently, our names accompany us daily, we hear them more than once a day.
With the process of growing up, we are already more deeply interested in the meaning of our names and are often ready to search through a lot of literature in order to find something new and interesting about ourselves.
The inhabitants of ancient Greece were piously confident in the magical power of words and were reputed to be great masters in creating the names that we use to this day. Moreover, it is characteristic that the Greeks sought to fill all names with a noble, sublime sense.
For example, the name Leonid is associated with the king of animals — Leo, and Dmitry — is dedicated to the goddess Demeter.
And the fact that the name has an impact on the whole human destiny — you can not even doubt it. It is for this reason that the selection of the name for his offspring appears to be a very delicate and responsible matter. Here it is necessary to pay attention to many details — the origin of the name, the peculiarities of compatibility with other names, meaning, fate, character, and so on.
It is important that all the nuances be taken into account.
Where do the names come from?
It is not reliably said when exactly the people began to invent their own names for each other. But, most likely, it was still the era of the gray-haired old.
Indeed, already in 280–205 BC, by the Stoic philosopher Chrysippus, all names began to be considered a separate category.
It is noteworthy that most of the names used in domestic countries are of Greco-Roman or Hebrew origin and were donated to us by Byzantine Christianity (church literature and holy calendar). But the variants of the original Slavic names began to be banned, as they caused an association in the human mind with the «godless» pagan centuries.
At the same time, no one thought about the fact that the majority of the names proposed by the holy calendar also apply to pagan deities, but not only Slavic, but ancient.
Distinguished Names Based on National Principles
Today, all European states, including the Russian Federation, have a basic “gentleman’s” set of names — most often you can find the names of Alexander, Mary, Elizabeth, Ivan, George and the like.
But a sufficient number of Slavic names that have a very beautiful sound and meaning have been preserved. Vsevolod is “the one in whose power the world is”, Zlata is “like gold”, Lyudmila is “the one who is sweet to people”, Stanislav is “who managed to achieve fame”.
Features of the meaning of male and female names
American scientists (University of California, Berkeley) conducted an investigation that involved more than four hundred and fifty students with unusual and very ordinary names. The purpose of the experiment was to establish scientifically how the name affects the fate of the individual.
The results were truly impressive — the geniuses of science found that students with strange and unusual hearing names suffer much more often from nervous disorders and are predisposed to different complexes. Since childhood, they are accustomed to take up a defensive position in society, and plus their confidence in the world around them is greatly reduced.
It is noteworthy that representatives of the male half of the population were more susceptible to the negative influence of names. That is why it is so important to choose the right name for your beloved son (or brother, grandson, nephew, and so on).
After all, the name really, as practice shows, significantly affects fate.
So, what moments should be considered to raise a happy, successful and successful boy?
The tricks of name selection for sons
How is the name combined with the last name
Unlike girls, who change their family names after marriage, the boy receives his information once and for all his life. Therefore, the choice of name for the heir is extremely important.
Experts of parapsychology assure that it is already possible to begin to pick up a name for your baby from the seventh to eighth months of the “interesting position”. To do this, it is recommended to start pronouncing the vending variants of names out loud, as well as keep a written record.
It is believed that if the baby «approves» the name invented by him at the vibration level, he will give a sign. Of course, only those who sincerely believe in it can use this technique.
As for linguists and philologists, they give the following recommendations to this effect: a long middle name must be supplemented with a short name, and for a short name, the situation changes radically. For example, from the harmonious combinations of name and patronymic can be called «Ivan Alekseevich» or «Alexei Ilyich.»
To pronounce the name it was even easier — get puzzled by the question of sound harmony: if the first letter of the middle name is a vowel, then the last letter of the name must be consonant and vice versa. For example, Alexander Igorevich, but not Alexey Petrovich.
A spurious combination is given by consonants, abundant at the junction between the name and patronymic, and also — repetitions of the same consonant sounds. In this case, you risk “breaking” the language each time you call your son by name (for example, the combination “Artem Rolandovich, Ruslan Valerievich).
The best thing is when the stress in the names and patronymic names converge on the same syllable in a row, because it greatly facilitates the pronunciation (Sergey Andreevich, Anton Sergeyevich).
Diminutive parody of dad
The idea of giving the son the name of the father, of course, is quite noble, however, psychologists do not recommend doing so. This is explained by the fact that the growing up boy will constantly be under pressure from the authority of his parent and risks not realizing the full potential of nature.
If the father was able to succeed in life — the young man throughout his life will try to match him. And if suddenly he can not achieve the same thing, he will encounter complexes that will seriously ruin his life.
And maybe with exactly the opposite — a loser father will slow down the bright abilities of his son. Plus, it is believed that the fact of having the same names in the family at the energy level makes both father and son weaker.
If your head does not leave the idea to give your child the name of the pope — then experts advise to call the boy a diminutive version. Due to this, you will identify the boy as an independent person and save yourself from the risk of constantly confusing the same names.
Do not give your son a male-female name
Psychology experts advise not to name boys with female-male names (Valeya, Zhenya, Sasha, and so on), especially if you have an unwitting surname. So you will save your child from internal discomfort, he will not need to constantly explain to which sex he belongs.
And, of course, do not strive to give your son too original name. It will become too great a temptation for others, who may begin to invent various options for offensive nicknames.
In the period of transitional age, at the peak of the aggravation of all feelings, the boy may begin to experience real hatred for his name.
Take care the sound issue
Also in the science of names it is said that naming a baby with a “hard” or “soft” name will actually contribute to the manifestation of missing character traits in his character and personality.
Therefore, if you want to grow a leader who is confident in his own strength and strives to achieve a goal regardless of any obstacles in his path, then it is right that the letters “p” and “n” appear in his name. But those names in which there are sounds «l», «m» and «n» — indicators of the presence of a person of a soft and docile nature.
Interesting fact! Pay your attention to the fact that different personality characteristics can be mitigated or completely neutralized, provided that there are a large number of children in the team with the same name.
And so, when you record your baby in the Civilian Registry Office, it would not be superfluous to clarify how many offspring offsprings were registered this year? After all, there is a very high probability that they will later meet, for example, in the same class.
And then no school will pull 100 Artyomov or Yang.
The tricks of the selection of the name for the son of the church calendar
Many modern parents are beginning to take an active interest in the religious life, so in recent years the demand for church names has increased significantly. Argued that the clergyman, whose name got to your child, now becomes his guardian angel.
In addition, now the church does not impose such stringent requirements as before and allows you to give your children the names of those saints, whose memory is celebrated on the eighth and fortieth days after their birth. And not only on the day of birth.
Plus, the church calendar also became popular by month of birth, and not just by day.
It may surprise you that the calendar people often repeat the same names of boys for different months. However, this does not mean that this name has the same patron, distributed on different dates.
The matter here is quite different: for example, the December-month is the celebration of the day of Angel Alexander, whose patron saint is Alexander Nevsky. But Alexander, the birthday of April, refers to the patronage of the already Rev. Alexander Svirsky.
Recommendations for naming girls
Not so long ago, anthroponymic scholars (the Goethe Institute) conducted a study in which more than three hundred names took part, in particular namesakes. Scientists have tried in the process of research to trace the relationship between the name and the fate of man.
In the course of the experiment, the main life stages, successes and failures of the fair sex were analyzed, starting from the earliest years to maturity, in order to understand whether the names that our parents called us affect our ups and downs in life.
According to the results, it was established that those ladies, girls and women who have gentle, romantic names (Milana, Snezhana) have difficulties with career advancement. But they are more lucky in the works.
Natalya and Elena are distinguished by their utmost discipline, as well as leadership abilities, and Svetlana, by her gentleness and docility.
What is the reason for this? Specialists in this case, poke a finger into the phenomenon of «music of names.»
The latter suggests that part of the names is different melodious sound, caressing the organs of hearing and, accordingly, they provoke a desire to pronounce them more often. And others, on the contrary, provoke a desire to shrink and strain.
Thus, such a name at the subconscious level will create a certain idea about a specific person and the properties of her character.
But still, how to choose a name so as to give your future daughter happiness, success and good luck? Let’s start to deal with this issue in more detail.
How does the name complete the last name
We must not forget that your baby will be forced to hear his own name very often, almost constantly, no matter where they are: at home, in kindergarten, at school, at university, or at work. And it is very important that the interlocutor does not “stumble”, pronouncing the name, and its owner was not forced to pinch, waiting to say whether his name is true or not.
When choosing a name for your daughter, be sure to pronounce various options several times, read the diminutive versions. The “home” version of your girl’s name is also significant, especially for serious and solid names. After all, it is by a diminutive name that you can demonstrate all your emotions and feelings towards the baby.
If you do not feel sufficient confidence in one way or another, contact other members of the family for help.
As well as in the situation of choosing the name of the boys, pay attention to the surname and patronymic. If they are long — then it is worth choosing a shorter name. for example, Miloslavskaya Kira Viktorovna will sound much more harmoniously than Miloslavskaya Alexandra Viktorovna.
It is not recommended to match a large number of consonants at the junction of the name with the last name, so that they do not violate the pronunciation. Otherwise, the baby will feel internal discomfort and embarrassment every time his name is spoken incorrectly, which in turn provokes constant uncertainty and squeezing.
For example, it is more difficult to pronounce the “Kern Evangelina” combination than “Kern Anna”.
Diminutive copy of mommy
There are cases when babies are called mothers or grandmothers. Want to have two Irins in your family? Then take care of the choice of affectionate name for your daughter, which is different with yours.
In this case, little Ira cannot be confused with her mother Ira.
We advise you to stock up on a piece of paper and a pen. Write the invented version of the name together with the middle name and surname on the leaflet.
Make sure the initials also have an attractive look. In the case when out of the three letters set in a row, a funny or indecent combination is obtained, search for other options.
Names with the same letter
Astrologers say that such names are lucky for daughters, the first letter of which is the same as the first letter of the names of one of the parents.
When the names of the parents begin with the same letter, it is definitely a sign from above to give their daughter a name in the same letter range.
In this case, the daughter of Alexander and Arina Ariadne automatically falls under the powerful patronage of the heavenly bodies.
Choosing a name for girls on the zodiac horoscope
Even astrology experts say that before you come up with a name for your daughter, it’s worthwhile to do a detailed analysis of the planets’ movement, taking into account which of the celestial bodies were strongest at the time of the birth of the child.
Astrologers are ready to swear both by the Moon and the Sun that the right name will contribute to enhancing the talents and abilities of the child, just as the wrongly chosen name will begin to weaken the energy of the baby, and then the adult.
In general, all names are divided into twelve categories, based on certain zodiacal constellations. And the most successful variants of names are those that belong to the related star group, one of the four elements.
It becomes clear that deciphering a name is not just a matter of boredom, but a real need for future parents. After all, in this way you will help to create for your child the most harmonious and successful version of reality.
And, of course, knowing what the names of people denote is always interesting, even just for oneself with the aim of common development.
