Post #65 – What’s in a Name – Fascinating Trivia

whats in a name glittery starry night

My name is Nancy, named after the song “Nancy with the Laughing Face” – Quite prophetic – I almost always wear a smile.

The name Nancy is a Hebrew baby name. In Hebrew the meaning my name is: Grace.

My middle name Jean – is also a Hebrew name meaning “gift of God” and “God is gracious”

I was born on a Tuesday . . . Tuesday’ child is full of grace – courteous of this sweet poem:

“Monday’s child is fair of face, Tuesday’s child is full of grace, Wednesday’s child is full of woe, Thursday’s child has far to go, Friday’s child is loving and giving, Saturday’s child works hard for a living, But the child who is born on the Sabbath day Is fair and wise and good in every way.” A. E. Bray – 1838

My last name (maiden is Walker) means one who walks, a traveler – Oh the irony! 🙂

I find the meaning of name derivatives fascinating. Being confined to bed (no longer a walker), I need lots of grace to thrive. And, thankfully, I receive it. Grace pulls me out of the mire to which I often succumb.

Check out the meaning of your name. Bet you will be surprised at how well it fits you. I believe that somehow our names have already been written in the stars before we are born.
