The common interpretation is given and not the extended personality traits that accompany each name. You may order these details names from the services page.

Why is your child's name so important? Because we are our names. when asked who we are, we automatically answer with our name, as if that says it all. Indeed it does once someone knows how to interpret the personality characteristics of any name.

Dale Carnegie said so in his book, "How to Win Friends and Influence People" which follows:

"A person's name is the sweetest sound a person can hear. Our name is our identity in the world."

How do you make sure that you pick the right name for your baby that will have the right baby name meanings? The ancient religions all agree that a soul names itself. The incoming soul impresses upon the person naming the baby what the baby wants to be called. So, trust your instincts. Name your child the name that is impressed upon you.

Some cultures, like in Turkey, give this honor to someone other than the parents. Again, the baby will know the culture that he is being born into and impress the desired name on the correct person who will be naming the baby.

Interpreting the names gives you a heads up on what your child will be like. We recommend that you use this information in determining what you teach your child versus what your child will naturally learn on his own. Since each name indicates a child's strengths and challenges we would suggest you teach skills that help your child overcome the challenges that come with child's name. Remember, all names have both challenges and strengths.
