Chatting with a friend from Syria this week, we got to comparing languages and translating each others’ names.
Arthur loves the fact that his name means ‘Bear Hero’ but I’ve always thought that the meaning of my name ‘Palm Tree’ was a little bland, especially in comparison to my sisters whose names mean things like princess, golden and grace.
Apparently, not so in the Middle East. There, a palm tree laden with dates is the ultimate symbol of fruitfulness! So what do you think? Should we change our blog name from Cyberpunk and Blue Twin to Bear Hero and Palm Tree?
Do you know what your name means? What do you like or not like about it?
