    Did your parents name you after some one, or did they just think it was a cool name?

    My mom was watching a movie called Cliff Hanger with Sylvester Stallone. Sylvester charecter was named Gabriel, and my mom thought that was a cool name.

    My name means "gift of God." Even as a newborn, my parents recognised no other name would do.

    I'm named after my grand fathers. And no they didn't have the same name.

    I'm named after both my father and grandfather, in a roundabout way: My first name (Aaron) includes my dad's name (Ron) and my initials (ABR) are the same as those of my paternal grandfather (Alan).

    I'm not entirely sure about why my folks picked my name. I think my mom was fond of Sean Connery, and liked the spelling of the name Sean. My middle name they picked because it flowed well with my first and last.

    That's all there it to it. XD The meanings of my names weren't important; all my parents were intent on was not having either my brother or me named after any relatives, for once.

    Heh, so am I. Named after both of them. Fortunately, the better name was put first.

    Also, my surname comes from someone seeing a black lake one day and thinking Sacre Bleu! That lake looks like coal! I shall found a town here named Coal Water Lake!
