Thread: Meaning Of Your Name

  1. #81
    "Buckeyes" are a tree grown in Ohio, USA ; the nuts are a dark, shiny brown. My dad called me that when I was tiny 'cause my eyes are so dark. My real name is Victoria, which simply means "victory" or "victorious"--and I was named after the English queen of that name!

    I named my town Mayfield after the town where the Cleavers lived in Leave It To Beaver TV show from the late 1950s/ early 1960s.

    I thought about Springfield (Father Knows Best) but there are several real towns with that name.

    I have since friended a Mayberry in this game.

    I'm still looking for a Warfield (Ozzie and Harriet).

    hi Victoria, and welcome to the forum + thanks for the explanation! I had just seen your other post from today, and had been wondering what it could mean

    LOL, Mayfield - a definite thanks for your explanation also! I don't know ANY of this, but at least got the general background now

    For _DD_, because I know you like this kind of thing , I found a website which explains the meaning of the Hindu name Harman, which is exactly as Harmman420 said (https://hamariweb.com/names/hindu/hi...-meaning_26889), but on the English language Wikipedia site it seems there is a European equivalent originating from Germany! (https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Harman_(surname)) And interestingly it also has connections to the army. Fascinating how two languages so far apart come to have the same name with such connections

    wow, that's fascinating indeed, many thanks JJ! ������
    I didn't think of googling it, cos it was so foreign to me, esp. with 2 m - never thought of Her(r)mann, which is explained here* (Google translate to English):

    The name is made up of the Old High German words "heri" for "army" and "man" for "man". So Hermann means something like "soldier", "warrior" or "fighter".
    and which I find a little more convincing than the English Wikipedia explanation re "Arminius", but that's just personal opinion; probably they are ALL related, lol. And there are lists of the name in tons of languages "everywhere" - almost as if it didn't have one origin.


    * that's a German TV-page, usually; no idea why they have a Names Encyclopedia!

    It's amazing how words seem to have spread through the world in the days long before planes and trains were even invented isn't it? Anyway, I'm going to stop now and not change the subject of this thread lol
