Meaning of the name Jan: Gift from God
@Tressy - I also love the old greek name. In Germany it's mostly pronounced Katharina. But my name is only Kathrin, not Katharina - my Mum didn't liked it :)
"of noble sort" or "noble". It can also mean"Honest" and "True" is always kind, and beautiful. She's a bit stubborn at times, but these little things are the things that make you enjoy her company, and companionship all the more.
Tressy, I ADORE the story of your name. I agree with Nicole, you still look like a doll.
Nichole~Victory of the people-
I have a similar story to Elises'...my mom liked the name Nikki from a soap opera star-she liked the spelling of Nichole better with an H. I'm always so tempted to say Nichole with H at Starbucks....sometimes I do hee hee!
James~He who supplants....which interestingly enough is a form of Jacobus~my son's name is Jacob....I have just always thought that was cool.
Shavonne means God is Gracious
