I've had two official names! The first meant singer. But was changed after 2 year for it sounded too old fashioned and long. Then it was switched to Riya, whose meaning I hadn't bothered to look for, until a few months back. Andd guess what? To my surprise, it means singer too! Not even my parents knew this! What were they thinking? haha.
Ok, so my first name consists of three names and their meanings are: "Yahweh is gracious", "Brave as a bear", and "giant"..... so..if you make it in a sentence...."Giant gracious God that is brave as a bear". WHAT??!!!
The name was borne in Roman mythology by the three daughters of Zeus, who were called the Graces. Among Christians, the meaning of the name is associated with the 'grace of God'. The name, among other virtue names, was taken up by English Puritans in the 17th century. It saw a revival in the 19th century, due to the British heroine Grace Darling (1815-1842) who famously helped her lighthouse keeper father save sailors in a storm in 1838. In the 20th century, the name saw another boost from the actress Grace Kelly (1928-1982), who married Prince Rainier of Monaco. In Ireland, the name is sometimes used as an Anglicized form of the Gaelic Gráinne.
And my last name is something like crooked jaw. Have fun figuring that one out.
"Johan is a masculine given name of Hebrew origin . It is a shortened form of the Hebrew name יְהוֹחָנָן (Yəhôḥānān), meaning "God is gracious", and uncommon as a surname. Johan is also a masculine given name of Malay language origin, meaning "Champion"."
My name have mutible meanings: The Pure, or Purified. and "Turncoat".
Anyway that babynamespedia pronounce my name as Trayn. Which isn't anything near correction, because in German lanuages a short first vocal(which should be pretty obivious, it is short as it is surrounded by consonants), makes the last vocal long.
