Geez.... well my proper name is Andrrew meaning Manly (my wife can vouch for that but hey! to much info...), Courageous and Brave(!), and its origin is Greek.

.... but 99% of the time I get called Andy. My wife only calls me Andrew if I've wound her up or something. Oops.

i think Marco means "marked", "branded" derived from latin. where do you got the "warlike" meaning from? there's the greek derived italian Macario, greek should be Makarios? that means "blessed", "happy" or the greek verb "machomai", substantive "machia" that means "i fight" "fight"

erm, Tim .. unless you want my alter ego, Chris Hicken

The boy's name Timothy is pronounced TIM-oh-thee. It is of Greek origin, and its meaning is "God's honor." Biblical: Timothy was an energetic, well-trained young Christian who was a companion of Saint Paul, who wrote to him, "Let no man look down on your youth."

There are several sites that has their own idea of what names means, from http://www.thinkbabynames.com my name means "edge". The name Kent was most popular in 1940-1960.

From http://www.babynamesworld.com my name means "shiny"

There are many sites.. here's a big list of sites http://www.trinity.wa.edu.au/plduffy...ages/names.htm

John, but hardly a secret I believe it's of Hebrew origins, meaning "God's gracious gift" or "God is gracious". Something like that.

My name is Teppo which doesn't really mean anything specific.. just a name.

Most of the finnish first names don't have any significant meaning, but there are some exceptions though...

Interestingly, I found out a while back that my name "teppo" phonetically translates to "gun" in japanese..
