We'll my first name was just kind of picked because my parents liked it, as far as I know there's no crazy story behind it or anyone.

 

My middle name has more significance to it though. It is my uncles name...we'll my uncle that I never got to meet, cause he died back in '89, about 8 years before I was even born. He died in a car accident about a week before my parents got married, and the driver of the other car was drunk. So my mom gave me his name as my middle name in honor of him. My mom always tells me I remind her of her brother. I wish I could have gotten to meet the guy, but at least I can sort of carry on his legacy in my name.

My first name simply comes from both my mother and father have first names beginning with the letter C so they went down that naming route.

My middle name is after my father's father.

RussianCommie

Well, my first name is Artem and it's a SUPER common Russian name and I'm not sure actually why my parents named me that. I suppose they just liked the name and went with it, I never cared much to ask. For laughs and giggles, I looked my first name up on Wikipedia and I got this as a result :lol: . 10 points for who sees the pattern :whistle: .

I go by my middle name instead of my first name therefore pretty much I was named after my Dad.

I was named (Bernard) after a volleyball player. I was going to be called Axel (yes, with an E) after Axl Rose. Looks like they would register my name incorrectly.

Johan

Juan Juan Juan Juan, I was named from my grandfather who's name is Juan.... and since I'm Hispanic.. Johan is supposed to be pronounced like Juan and therefore the name Johan came to be.

 

 

Or I can just come out and say I was named after Gohan which was a badass in the anime Dragon Ball Z, which is also Japanese for "Cooked Rice" which I eat 24/7.

Middle name comes from father's father, who are both French. The name's François.

 

I had no idea how to get the "c" in the name itself so I had to copy and paste it. It looks like sh*t. :lol:

Be sure to carry the legacy on and pass your middle name down to your son when the time comes :)

 

Honestly, I don't know. My name is Nick, but I don't know who I'm named after exactly..

No one. It sucks.

Although if you look at my full name you'll probably think I was named after some Persian ruler or something...
