The meaning of names

I was recently given this:


Apparently, my name is of Germanic origin, and means 'Spear', and I "Always get straight to the point".
I have to say, I'm inclined to agree - I'm not backward in coming forward, and tend to "mean what I say, and say what I mean" - maybe a little too much sometimes.

This website has interesting information on the derivation etc of names - what does your name mean?

  1. Isn't it bizarre that someone who 'gets straight to the point' is often described as 'blunt' in their language??
    My name means Messenger - born on Easter Sunday, Mum and Dad prayed I'd deliver The Message
