Your Name

Most of us have a name that serve as an identity for us but a name also have other uses. Our name can be our brand or even a positive label for ourselves.

Most of the time people are being labeled by others either positively or negatively. A label can either help you or work against you depending on how you look at it.

If you are being labeled as dumb and lazy by others and you start to believe it and act it out, this will be a case where labels work against you. But if others are labeling you as someone smart and intelligent and you start to believe and try your best to maintain that label, the labeling is working in your favor instead.

Do You Know The Meaning Of Your Name?

Our name has meanings in it and we can use it as our positive label. Have you ever check out on the internet to find out the meaning of your name? If not, it is a good time to do it now. Take a minute and find out the meaning of your name over here.

So have you got the meaning of your name?

For example; My name is Vincent and its meaning is prevailing. I checked out the meaning in the dictionary and the definition I got is, “to succeed; become dominant; win out: to wish that the right side might prevail.”

Now I am equipped with this new positive label that I can use whenever I need some motivation. Whenever I am facing any tough times, I will remind myself of my name and the positive label which is I will always prevail in the end. This positive label definitely keeps me going.

Parting Words

Always remember that labels can either help you or work against you. If people are giving you negative labels, you can choose to ignore it as labels do not make you. You make your own positive labels and believe in it.

After acquiring your new positive label, remember to use it when it is appropriate. Whenever you are facing any difficult times, remember the power of your name and use its meaning to help you get past your difficulties.

    @Hi Bonnie,

    You didn’t even cry? You must be a really happy baby. 🙂

    @Hi Carla,

    I believe this is the first time you . commented on HealthMoneySuccess.com. Welcome and do enjoy the articles here.

    You got a great name there and most people are seeking freedom (escape their 9 – 5 job 🙂 ). I also see freedom as happiness, as I believe without freedom, there will be no happiness.

    Interesting post! I was named after my father, Carl whom my name Carla is the feminine form of. Carl means “…from Karl, the German form of Charles (Old German) “free man”. So my name came from another which came from another.

    “Free man” (in my case, “free woman”) is appropriate I think.

    My mother wanted to name me Alexandra but that ended up being my middle name.

  5. Great post, I like to think about what names mean, it’s funny how many people live up to the meaning of their name too. Vincent is definitely a name that makes one think success, victory, etc.

    I got the name Bonnie (which I believes derives from Scottish, meaning pretty, good, nice, happy etc. :)) because my parents said I was a very happy & peaceful baby (didn’t even cry!). I’m naturally optimistic so I guess the name still fits 😉

    @Hi Evan,

    You got a great name there. 🙂

    @Hi Jens,

    Your name have a great meaning and maybe a little swagger here and there doesn’t do any harm. 🙂

    @Hi Pentad,

    You will definitely find a great affirmation for yourself. 🙂

    @Hi Lance,

    I find that we tend to label others consciously or sub consciously. I try my best not to do it and as sometimes labels can get rather negative.

    Hi Vincent,
    The power of labels – whether from our names, or from just other labels used by/about us – they certainly can affect how we think of ourselves. It’s a reminder to me – to watch out if I’m labeling others and not realizing it.

  8. Pentad says:

    Neat idea, and good to use as positive affirmations. I’m headed over to find my name.

    Hiya

    I really enjoyed this.
    This post got me thinking about names, syllables and mantras as used by some meditators. I realised our names are like mantras but with greater personal, social meaning. It’s the most powerful personal mantra you have.
    Interesting to hear how people prefer to be called: abbreviating their names, using nick-names or AKAs, extending their surnames when married or completely changing their names.

    It seems my name is scandinavian for John, which means gift of god. I’ll try not to swagger too much from now on.

    Thanks
    Jens

  10. Evan says:

    Evan is (yet another) variant of John.

    In other languages it has various meanings:
    Celtic: young warrior
    Welsh: god is good
    Hebrew: god is gracious (my favourite)

    Also a contraction of evanelos (Greek): good messenger
