December 25th is the day that Christians celebrate Jesus Christ’s birth. I researched lately and found that the name Jesus means “Savior”. Another name for him is Immanuel/Emmanuel – “God with us.” These definitions are right on.
What about other names? Do they appropriately describe the people they are connected to? In my husband’s and my case, for example, I think they do. Debra/Deborah means “seeking one” (yup! I’m always looking for answers, always asking questions) and “the bee”. Another truism, as bees are always seeking out flowers. David means “friend of God”. This describes my David quite well, as he has always loved God from a very young age.
Time to comment: I’m curious if your name matches you, whether its meaning is one you live up to, or if it doesn’t describe you at all. It’s so fascinating to use your favorite search engine to type “meaning of —-” and it comes up with the meaning.
Let me hear from you, and meanwhile – please enjoy a blessed Christmas!
