What the hell is going on here? I'd say I've met tens of thousands of people in my lifetime. I have NEVER heard of anyone name 'Race', or any variation of it (excluding perhaps Speed Racer). Now three of you know a 'Race'?

This name is spreading.

Ivan would be the Slavic equivalent of John or the relative of the Latin name Johannes, corresponding to the English John.

This Slavic version of the name originates from New Testament Greek, which is in turn derived from Hebrew יוֹחָנָן (Yôḥānān, meaning “‘Yahweh is gracious’”). The name is ultimately derived from the Biblical Hebrew name יוחנן (pronounced [joχanan]), short for יהוחנן (pronounced [jəhoχanan]), meaning "Yahweh is merciful".

Bit of a difference between being "gracious" and being "merciful"... think; serial killer with self control. Angel It's anyone's guess who wins with that god.

As a Prophet, the name of John seems fairly appropriate... or at least safer. A proclaimer only proclaims.... nothing to do with proaction. Wink

RE: What does you name "mean"?
So I searched my name in that site and everything makes sense now


Contribute Add to List
IGNATIUS
GENDER: Masculine
USAGE: Late Roman
PRONOUNCED: ig-NAY-shəs (English) [key]
Meaning & History
From the Roman family name Egnatius, meaning unknown, of Etruscan origin. The spelling was later altered to resemble Latin ignis "fire". This was the name of several saints, including the third bishop of Antioch who was thrown to wild beasts by emperor Trajan, and by Saint Ignatius of Loyola (1491-1556), founder of the Jesuits, whose real birth name was in fact Íñigo.


It wasn't that other sites didn't know the meaning of my name, is that my name actually means unknown... I wonder if that was the word used for people whose name wasn't know, as anonymous today. That would mean I'm Anonymous, creator of uncountable pieces of art and sayings and a social movement by myself... BOW TO ME!!!! MUAHAHAHAHAAHA

Also, it was weird seeing all the comments from dozens of Laura's talking about Laura (minus the one guy named Osman who said Laura is a pretty name ).


We have the same first name! Yes the laurel plant was woven and placed on the winners of the ancient Olympic games. My mother loved an old timey song by Frank Sinatra called "Laura" and named me after that song.
