This isn't about compiling a dictionary, it's about discovering the individual stories behind names and the personal meanings to you. And here is my story:
I like my name, but I prefer not to use it, and that it not be generally known. It's near the end of the alphabet, and the story that was told to me by my mother is: My father rejected every option, and there was great debate. My brother's name is at the beginning of the alphabet because my father didn't want to go through the list again. I don't know how true that is!
