    Irene

    http://www.scrapbookmax.com/gallery/...20760&cat=1463

    came from 11 brothers and sisters.Most of them had their name drawn out of a hat.I was special as one sister named me after her favorite song IRENE GOODNIGHT.Now I am Blessed ha ha.


    IRENE___


    In Greek mythology, Eirene or Irene was the goddess who personified peace. Although she did not play an active part in many myths, Eirene was still a source of inspiration for several ancient artists, writers, and poets. Child of Zeus and Themis, the goddess Eirene was known by the name of Pax in Roman mythology.
    The name is very popular in Spain, where it was the 6th most popular name in 2006

        All of these are so wonderful. What a great way to find out more about everyone.

        In case I go missing call Moonlightpearl, Granny, twpclerk or Smile! Then have them call Crops because we're probably together at the Yoville Races!

          The name Sue, Susie, Susan, Susanna etc...means Lily in Hebrew and French

          The name Arlene means "Oath" or "Pledge" in Irish/Celtic
          In English it is a varient of Carlene and Charlene. In French it is derived from a feminine diminutive of Charles meaning Manly and is a medieval givin name.

          My mom had considered naming me "Tina". But my dad said that "Tina" was more fitting for a tiny person and neither of them were "Tiny", so he didn't think the name would be fitting.

          Before I was born, must have been the year before, my mom and dad asked my dad's cousin Susie to come stay with them during summer break. She was a teenager. They were looking for a babysitter and told her she could make a little money during the summer that way. So she did. The following year I was born and they ended up naming me after her and my Great Grandmother. Then my middle name came from my Aunt Arlene, my mom's sister. So my names are from both sides.

                  I agree. It was lots of fun reading about the origin of the names. It reminded me how we decided on names for our kids. My youngest son was supposed to be a Stephen, but when he came in like a "747" (fast), he became a Douglas (like the airliner).

                        Ok well here is my page with my name.....I always thought It was really cool how I got my name and now all of you can see my mom was a Bobbie Vinton fan but her greatest love was Elvis...could have been called Jail house Rock....or Love me tender...But that greatest laugh I got was when I googled my name to show what it ment I got....drum roll please........Over Powering and Controlling but great in the sack.....now stop laughing..hey did you hear me get off the floor...Hope said that was so true as she laughed hysterically but said she'd defer to my hubby that she works for about the last part.

                                Hope I am not too late. Again I waited till the last minute!!
                                I used Fiona's kit "Naturally Memorable" from the store here: http://www.scrapbookmax.com/store/pr...&cat=0&page=17
                                I recolored the BG a little, and the doodles are from Amy Leigh Fennel at GDS. I was actually named after my paternal grandfather "Paul" who moved to this country from Poland.
