We've all got 'em. Some of us like our names, while others go by "AKA's," (Also Known As). I got a comment a while ago from a lady whose name was Tanna. Since I had never known anyone with that name, I looked it up. It means gracious or saint. A lovely meaning for a lovely name.
My dear mother named me after one of her cousins who she adored. Unfortunately, from my first memory, i totally disliked the name...even the way it looked on paper! In my early 20's i just started introducing and signing my middle name, Janean. It means, "God is gracious."
This FAB clock is a Mora clock, so named from the town in which they were originally made in Sweden. It describes the style of clock, much like our names describe us.
Another funny thing...The vast majority of my close friends have been named "Jan" or "Carol."
