Thought this was interesting... A buddy of mine looked up the meaning of his name (it's an Irish name). His full name literally means 'Lord of the elves of the old wood'. Of course now all of us friends and co-workers are calling him Legolis (from Lord of the Rings), or keep running up to him saying stuff like, 'News from the east...the dwarves are attacking Rivendale...we need you to rally the elf troops...'. So, I looked up my name and found it is a combination of German, Scottish, and Greek names, that literally translates to: Peaceful Scotsman who loves horses. Kind of different. Just wondered if any of you have ever looked up the meanings of your names and found any interesting translations.
