Finding My Name

Good morning everyone.  I hope that your week is going well.  I am preparing to more projects to paint as well as prepare to teach a paint class tomorrow. 
For today's blog, I was contemplating names.  I started to think about what my married name means...how difficult it is for most people to pronounce it.  I decided to just be like CHER....just a four letter word...DEBI...when I am introduced on stage or as a presenter.  It is too difficult to go over the pronunciation.  I know that in the English language it means Forest or Park.  It was more than likely a name given because originally the family lived in or near a forest.  I thought that to be of interest.  I searched around a bit and discovered names like Wagoner...were wagon makers, Sharpe were smart thinkers, and so on and so forth.  That got me very interested in my
Maiden name.  So off I went to search it out.  It didn't take very long to uncover the meaning behind the name...a brave man.  Hmm...interesting as that may be, what was even more interesting was what I uncovered about the name.  I am a famous motorcycle....aircraft and scouting organization.  My maiden name in Poland is a motorcycle equivalent to the Harley...go figure...and I have never been on one...LOL.  As I searched a little more...I found all sorts of things with my maiden name on it.  Key rings, cuff links, etc.  Talk about something personalized!  I no longer use my maiden name...but often thought about using it I lieu of my married name since it is much easier to pronounce.  I have done a lot of genealogy about my mothers side of the family but little about my fathers side since I didn't know much about him or his family.  Now that I have discovered the back ground of the name...it definitely warrants tracing it back.  I would love to find out more about how and why all these things were named what they are.  It would be interesting to see whether the family had any connection whatsoever to these items. It is interesting to learn about the background to names.  To trace back the origins and discover perhaps the secrets behind your family. I am sharing some photos of my famous name.  I would love to hear what your names reveal.  In the meantime...enjoy the search.  How fortunate are we these days that all we have to do is type in a question and in seconds we have many answers to chose from.
