Subject: What's in a name?

Forum: What's in a name?
I've always found word origins to be quite fascinating. Every word that we use has some root or origin, which gives the word meaning. With that being said, do you happen to know the origin of your name? Not necessarily the specific reason why you were given your name, but rather that true meaning behind your name. This is something that I had looked up in the past, but I've forgotten over the years. I'm interested to see the variation in origins between names. Feel free to use an alias if you're not comfortable with sharing your real name on here.


Here's mine:

Jared = from the Hebrew name יָרֶד (Yared) or יֶרֶד (Yered) meaning "descent". This is the name of a close descendant of Adam in the Old Testament. (Source: Behind the Name)

Subject: The Last Word....

Forum: The Last Word....
Happy Sunday, everyone! I hope you all have a great finish to your weekend.


Today I've decided to create a "game" style forum. I have no idea how well this is going to work out, but I'll give it a try.

The concept is rather simple....all you have to do is create a sentence about anything, but you must incorporate the last word of the previous poster's sentence in your own in some way.

Here's my sentence:

I am 25 years of age, and I grew up in a small town in Pennsylvania .

Forum: Describe yourself in one word!!!
Good morning, Alaska!

I'd say one word that describes myself would be determined .


I'm not one to give up easily on things I'm after, no matter how many obstacles I may face along the way.


P.S. I wish you the best of luck in your courses! :)
