everyone's name means something! i think it would be fun to do a swap based on your partner's name's meaning.  for instance, melissa means honey bee, so everything would be bee based!  any interest?

I like the idea of this... but I have an unfortunate name for it (at least for crafted goodies I would like). "God's grace and riches"... (I wonder if Bride and I have the same name and are just using different name meaning sources.... )

if you dont like the god's __________   part (ie you'd prefer non-religious stuff)  you could just have your partner craft for the other half of the meaning.like in your guys' cases, just ask for the 'grace and riches' part or the 'oath' or abundance' part.  also, my real name is christina which is 'follower of god' but i go my the ninckname nina which means 'little darling' ...so nicknames should be appropriate as well.   i think it would also be acceptable to choose between first name meaning or middle name meaning...thoughts?

Seeing as my name is of the roman goddess of hunt and I hate hunting I don't know if it would be a good thing. But I guess Diana was also the goddess of the moon and I do like the moon! Cheesy

i like this.

my name means: my God is an oath; my God is abundance

what could be "crafted" with that?? Huh Huh

God's abundance - flowers, grown food (like an herb kit), sunset themed stuff, music/art, something made from silk yarn or any natural fiber - all kinds of things!

My name means "pearl" so my partner would have to have a long crafting time to irritate an oyster Smiley
