. . names are something interesting imo . . . Tracing them back etc. . .
One might discover that they contain biblical references ,references to germanic mythology (or any mythology ) etc ,etc . . .
Then, I think had it been up to some folks themselves "back then" lol , they might have "chosen another one" , lol . .
Names just happen to be names . .Gotta live with them. .

What reference is in your personal first name ?
Names originally used to be given to people to describe traits of character of theirs (in ancient times I think ) . . This is how they came about . .
Today , so many exist that name-givers more or less have a 'free choice'.. lol
So, what about your personal first name ?
. . .
My first name is "Kurt" ......
According to my research , widely distributed German name with germanic roots ,often deemed as the short-form of 'Conrad' , meaning 'keen advisor' . .
Interesting . .
But . . like I said , the times when there were unique names is over . . Just one among many I suppose. . .
Though I've always been 'satisfied' with this name . .
lol ,I've been the 'target' of this song often , more or less . . . lol
What about you ?
