I tend to think that names are declarations over the people that they are given to... prophetic almost. For instance, how Abram went to being Abraham in the Bible... God changed his name from being just high father to "Father of many nations..." My DH and I named our sons the way we did because we believe that it is prophetic... just wondering what some of your views on this were?

If names are prophetic then my daughter will be cursed after spurning the advances of a Greek god. Somehow, I really don't think that's going to happen.

My name is Kristina, which is a derivative of Christina, being the female form of Christian meaning "believer in Christ". I'm an Atheist. I don't think I need to tell you I don't put too much stock into the whole names being prophetic thing.
