Here is the link to my original post, yes I think I was the 1st.
I have a CPA friend that is a self taught biblical scholar.
He believes we grow into the meaning of our names, and always wants to know what you named the baby.
So one day (10/15/2008 ) I did what he does and research the meaning of "someones" name :-).
This is what I came up with....
Sarah : Princess (in Hebrew)...
Louise : Renowned Fighter....
Heath : From the Outer Lands...
Palin : Who will serve at the table ..
She is: The Princess, who is a Renowned Fighter, from the Outer Lands, who will Serve at the Table...
If you haven’t yet done so, give the names in the Book of Ruth a go. Very interesting clues to the storyline!
Thanks MH, I hear she was reading it with Piper. I got to run some errands, maybe later tonight...
Hmmm Our new secretary of state in Michigan is Ruth Johnson. Wonder how accurate that would be. She’s a real crusader against vote fraud.
Can you document your research?
Thanks for posting that. I think there is something to ‘growing’ into your name. My name is Karmann, which means song. I’m a singer and musician. I’m also a songwriter, but didn’t get serious about it until the past 5 or 6 years. I feel like I’m finally doing what I was supposed to do in life - and have grown into my name.
Here’s a song I composed, based on the poem ‘In Flanders Fields’ in honor of Memorial Day.
p.s. RUN SARAH RUN
My name is John and my great grandmother always called me St John the crusader because I have always fought for what I believed.
Bring me a sandwich?
I like it! ... But get that man a shirt that fits!
LOL! That’s why the words are in the video - to distract people from looking at John’s belly. ;-)
That’s living up to your name.
What is the linguistic origin of Palin, or the one you have assumed? (Germanic, Greek, what?) I was thinking that a palindrome is a word or phrase spelled the same forwards as backwards.
palingenesis \pal-in-JEN-uh-sis\ , noun;
1. Rebirth; regeneration.
2. In biology, embryonic development that reproduces the ancestral features of the species.
3. Baptism in the Christian faith.
4. The doctrine of transmigration of souls.
Palingenesis is the combination of two Greek roots: palin, "again," and genesis, "source."
From the Concise English Dictionary:
Palingenesis: a new birth; reincarnation, a second creation, regeneration, unmodified inheritance of ancestral character, the new formation of a rock by re-fusion.
Is Sarah Palin of Greek extraction, then?
For years, I wrongly assumed that the Latin word pagus = “rural area; country” was related to the Greek word pagos = “rocky hill.”
Also there was a discussion on Free Republic some time ago about “gopher wood” in the Bible. It is unrelated to the gopher animal — that’s just how the Hebrew letters transliterate.
I think a certain group of guys on this board have a hugh crush on Sarah Palin. :)
