Hullo, friend, & welcome! In this teeny space of mine you'll find books, reviews about books, fandoms from books, stories I wish to make into books, and other non-bookish things about me & my life as a wife, mama, & homemaker. I wish to live for the glory of my King; I want to be known as an Encourager; & it's my desire to someday publish a book or two. So if you like, pull up a chair, grab your favorite beverage, & sit a while.

welcome to my blog

What's in a Name?

This set features names of an Ancient sort.  Celtic and Egyptian, to be exact.  :]  I know, odd combo, but these are pretty fantastic, in my opinion.

Brennus
Gender:  Masculine
Usage:  Ancient Celtic (Latinized)
Pronunciation:  BREN-ǝs (English)

Meaning & History
Latinized form of a Celtic name, or title, possibly meaning "king, prince" or "raven."  In 4th-century BC, Brennus was a Gallic leader who attacked and sacked Rome.


Genovefa
Gender:  Feminine
Usage:  Ancient Celtic

Meaning & History
Gaulish form of the French Genevieve, which possibly means "tribe woman."

Seti
Gender:  Masculine
Usage:  Ancient Egyptian

Meaning & History
Means "of Seth" in Egyptian.  This was the name of two pharaohs in the 19th dynasty.  [Not related to the Biblical name; this one comes to mean something like "pillar" or "dazzle."  Seth (pro. SET or SAYT) was the Egyptian god of chaos and the desert.]


Nefertari
Gender:  Feminine
Usage:  Ancient Egyptian
Pronunciation:  nef-ǝr-TAHR-ree (English)

Meaning & History
Means "the most beautiful" in Egyptian.  This was the given name of an Egyptian queen of the New Kingdom, the favorite wife of Rameses II.









Any suggestions?
