From the Gaelic name Conchobhar which means "dog lover" or "wolf lover". This was the name of an early king of Ulster. Irish legends tell of his tragic desire for Deirdre.

"Charles" is Teutonic and means "manly," as should be obvious from the picture below.


"Chuck," on the other hand, is something you grind up for taco meat.

First Name: Jasen

The boy's name Jason is pronounced JAY-sun. It is of Greek and Hebrew origin, and its meaning is "healer; the Lord is salvation." Variant of Joshua. Biblical: an early Christian associate of Paul. Greek mythology: Jason was leader of a group of warrior heroes called the Argonauts.


Jason seems to be a pretty popular name, really popular in B.C.

Jasen is a rare spelling of the name...


Middle Name: Anthony

The boy's name Anthony is pronounced AN-tha-nee. It is of Latin origin. English form of the old Roman family name Antonius, probably of Etruscan origin. Mark Anthony (82-30 BC), Roman triumvir and general, sat on the throne and had a tempestuous political career with Queen Cleopatra of Egypt. Saint Anthony (third century) was an Egyptian hermit monk who founded the first Christian monastic order and is traditionally renowned for his resistance to the devil. According to legend, he lived alone in the wilderness for over 80 of his hundred-some years.

Hmm I remember first day of freshman year we did a game like this. My friend Amber said "My name is Amber, it means old, fossilized tree sap." It was funny at the time.


My name is Holden...not too sure what it means, I think my parents made it up. But it is the name of that outcast boy from Catcher in the Rye...

Scott - From a surname which meant "Scotsman" in Old English. The original meaning of the word Scot is debated, but it may mean "tattoo", so given because Scotsmen often had tattoos.


Funny, this is the first time I've ever even tried to look up the meaning of my name. The findings are amusing considering I'm part Irish, and have a grand total of zero tattoos.
