What is the meaning of... Sarah

One of my wonderful Facebook follower asked me recently, what the meaning of her name Sarah is. So I thought of creating a post about the meaning of Sarah. In the Bible, Sarah was the wife of Abraham and mother of Isaac. Her name was originally Sarai (quarrelsome), but God commanded that her name be changed to Sarah before the birth of her son. The Hebrew name Sarah indicates a woman of high rank and is translated as "princess" or "noblewoman"

Popular women the the name Sarahare: Sarah Jessica Parker (Sex and the City) and Sarah Michelle Gellar (Buffy)

Sarah Michelle Gelar

In Muslim the meaning of the name Sarah is: Pure. Happy.

Meaning of ...Josephine

Josephine was the only girl name that I've really liked.
My husband and I were blessed in November last year with a sweet girl. Well what can I say I got my Josephine . But I confess that I have not sought for the meaning , as I already thought that the name is a feminine form of the name Joseph. I love the story of Joseph in the Old Testament . This story shows that a hopeless situation in life, can mean a great turning point in life .

Now I have looked for the original meaning. Josephine is the feminine form of Joseph, and it derived from the Hebrew Yosef. It means: May Jehovah add / give increase.

How beautiful is that? I love the name even more!
Famous namesake is of course Josephine Baker!

Josephine Baker

May Jehova add (increase) anything you wish this week!

Today we look at the meaning of the name Yvonne.

Famous bearers of the name are the two Ghanaian Actresses Yvonne Nelson and Yvonne Okoro and the U.S. actress Yvonne DeCarlo. What the name Yvonne has to do with the yew tree?

Yves comes from the Germanic 'Iv' which means yew!
Formerly with the wood of the yew bow for archer was made.Yvonne can therefore also mean archer.

Meaning of the Name Usain (Bolt)

Usain Bolt
Image: Wikipedia

Now during the Olympics, the name Usain falls continuously. I am a big fan of him because he is so different. He is funny, sassy and talented, of course! It has triggered off a veritable Usain fever! Because I like to know what is the meaning of famous names, I've searched and found the meaning of Usain. :)
Usain is a typical jamaican name meaning: small, Beauty
But must confess that the name, pronounced, reminds me of the Arabic name Hussain.
And actually, the name derived from Arabic origin, Which means Door of good deeds!

No matter how Usain Bolt is simply brilliant!

I wish him continued success!

Meaning of Kelly (Rowland)

Today I held a small picture quiz. Now comes the answer: It was Kelly Rowland!
Now I thought it would be good to know the meaning of the name Kelly.
Kelly is a Gaelic / Irish name. The meaning is: War, strife, bright-headed

So it means everyone who bears this name,  is a fighter!

I think Kelly Rowland is also a fighter. Ever since the split of the world's known group Destiny's Child, she has been able to compete in the big world of music! Her latest album is called Here I Am.

'Motivation' is one of the songs on this album. Here she performs it on the BET Awards. So let yourself be seduced by the fighter with the vocal power!

Meaning of Liv

Hey Peoples,

Today I found a nice new name, the meaning I want to share with you: It is Liv, famous namesake, Liv Tyler. The famous actor from "The Lord of the Rings" is gorgeous and talented actress. I have to admit honestly that I had not given her credit that she has a talent for acting, I thought that she benefited from the relationship of her famous father, Steve Tyler from Aerosmith. But in "The Lord of the Rings" she convinced me!

So back to your name. Liv has a meaning in three languages​​:

Hebrew: God is My vow
Norse: Defence, Protection
Norwegian: Life

Liv Tyler
Wow what a beautiful name! Very expressive.

Do you think the name Aaliyah beautiful like I do? I just had to find out what the meaning is.
Aaliyah comes from the hebrew name Aliyah, it means to ascend, to go up
You can find the name in Arabic it means here lofty, sublime
In Swahili it means exalted

No matter what language it is a meaningful strong name. This name must inevitably come to think of the famous namesake Aaliyah Haughton. This woman was so pretty, she looked like an angel on earth. May her soul rest in peace.
I have two favorite songs of her.

1. Are you that somebody
