I need help with a couple names?

I need help with a couple names? Topic: Life map writing assignment

Question: Hi everyone! I am in college and one of my classes is based around writing short stories. There will be a few throughout this semester, but the point of the assignment is that they all need to tie into a larger story at the end of the term. Which I thought was a great idea until we had to be assigned prompts, and mine included that of a single mom. I have basically figured out the details about my characters but cannot decide on names. My story is about a small town southern girl who was married, and things did not work out completely how she thought they would. So she comes back in hopes of starting a new life basically with all of the drama to follow. I have not mapped out everything completely but I do have a few ideas of what is going on. My main character is twenty-six, with blonde hair and brown eyes. Right now she is an RN, but I am not completely sure in what area yet. She was the classic over achiever in high school who thought her life was figured out and now she's having to deal with nothing turning out how she thought it would. She's a really down to earth and sweet character if that helps. My other character is two almost three with light brown hair and dark eyes. I honestly have not put much thought into her yet, except with everything going on she has become a little more reserved, and unsure of herself. I know that I have rambled on here more than I should but I just wanted to paint a small picture of these characters. I really do not care if they are traditional names or not honestly. I just want them to sound right together so if you could pair them that would be great. Thank you so much for any help and I really do appreciate it.

Main character - Eloise, Genevieve or Danielle. Two year old - Amelie, Lila or Piper. Eloise and Amelie, Danielle and Piper or Genevieve and Lila. I prefer Genevieve and Lila personally, and I think the names fit the description you've given. Good luck and I hope I helped! [Romilly]

"Some early American favorites, often given on the theory that the right name could inspire virtuous behavior, seem destined not to stage comebacks. But then again, if there was a sudden renewed interest in the eighteenth century or a shift in the moral climate, we could find day-care centers filled with virtuously named tots like Mindwell, Thankful, Hope, Charity, Increase, Waitstill, Sufferanna, and Prudence." (Paul Dickson, "Names") I would add Constance, Mercy, Deliverance, and Patience to this list. From my personal family tree, I'm giving you some of the more colorful names: Female Mehitable Philippa Tabitha Tamson Sibyl Belinda Pamelia Perthania (her sister) Zina Male Tristram Isaac Gershom Ebenezer Reuben Peleg Ephraim Othniel Elias Jabez Roswell Wilmot Humphrey Ransom Darius These are all names of people born in the 1600s-1700s. I hope this helps!

Get Yee to the Bible - - - not that I am a Bible Thumper but when Colonal American parents were about to name a child they tended to search the Bible for names // // thus one will find a lot of Sarah and Rachel and Ruth for women in Colonial times, and for men a greater variety, Jedediah, Daniel, Ezekiel, Hiram, and rare names that persisted into the 20th Century such as Adlai - - - seriously peruse the True Testament for men's names - - - Obadiah, Micah, Abel, Cyril, but the Bible was limited for women's names and many Colonials avoided the name Rachel since it was 'Jewish.' Also since Elizabeth was a fond memory in every Englisman's mind due to the Queen, a wide variety of variations were common// Eliza, Elsbeth, Beth, Bess, Bessie, and variations such as Bethany and Bethel - - - Peace.... PS Also when writing English and/or American fiction be aware of accents - - - Harry for Henry both without an H - - - and Bess for Beth - - -

Stirling Originally Answered: Throughout the Bible the glories and importance of chanting Gods names have been given,what names are theses?
That they may know that thou alone, whose name is Jehovah, Art the Most High over all the earth. Psalms 83:18 Praise ye Jehovah. Praise ye the name of Jehovah; Praise him , O ye servants of Jehovah. Psalms 135:1 Thy name, O Jehovah, endureth for ever; Thy memorial name, O Jehovah, throughout all generations. Psalms 135:13 Let them praise the name of Jehovah; For his name alone is exalted; His glory is above the earth and the heavens. Psalms 148:1 Srila Prabhupada, founder of ISKCON says regarding father (God or Krishna) and Jesus (son of God). "The awakening of pure love of God is the ultimate perfection of all bona fide religious principles including Christian, Judaic, Mohammedan, Hindu, etc. Lord Jesus Christ said that one should love God with all his heart, and soul and mind. Similarly Krishna instructs that everyone should surrender unto Him in Love. Krishna is God and Krishna says to love Him only. Therefore there is no difference between the original teachings of Lord Jesus Christ and Krishna." Lord Jesus says (John 6:46), “Not that any man hath seen the father, save he which is of God, he hath seen the Father.” Lord Jesus is the faithful son of God and his Father God is Krishna, so there cannot be any disagreement between them. Therefore the Father and Son are one, in agreement. Lord Jesus explains that he kept his disciples faithful to the Lord in His Holy Name. And the process of Lord Sri Caitanya is the same—to keep one always in contact with the Supreme Personality of Godhead by constantly chanting the HARE KRISHNA Mahamantra, the Holy Names of the Lord. Some information regarding Krishna and Jehovah by found in the book "Om Shalom", a conversation between Satyaraja Dasa and Rabbi Shimmel. Satyaraja Dasa (Steven J. Rosen), comes from a Jewish background and has been studying Krishna Consciousness -academically and as a practitioner-for the last seventeen years. Rabbi Jacob N. Shimmel, a halakhic scholar originally hailing from Prague, Czechoslovakia. A rabbi for over twenty years, and Founder and Director of the Talmud and Torah Beth Rabbinical Association. Satyaraja Dasa: What are some of the other, authentic names for God as found in the Bible? Rabbi Shimmel: One of the most prominent is Elohim (“The Almighty”), which occurs about 3,350 times. This is related to the Semitic El (“Divinity”). El can be found in the word Israel. El Eliyon is another related name. These can be found throughout the Bible... all substitutes for the Tetragrammaton... YHWH. Another name, used less frequently, is El Shaddai. Of course, in everyday parlance, we usually say HaShem... this is the commonly used name. HaShem merely means “the Name.” But, you see, the Tetragrammaton, YHWH, this represents the actual name. It is known as the shem hameforash, or “the explicit name.” This is the one that is honored by the mystics. Each of the four Hebrew letters—yad, hay, vav, and hay—is said to reveal various aspects of the highest reality. Satyaraja Dasa: There are Indian scholars who have had some thoughts on this. Yadavayah, they say. Another name for Krishna. They say this could be the name... it has the appropriate letters. Rabbi Shimmel:They took their best shot. Satyaraja Dasa: Gross speculation. Seriously, though. There is a correlation that can be made between the Hare Krishna maha-mantra and the Tetragrammaton. It may be considered speculative, but there is definitely at least an abstract connection, a correlative feature. The maha-mantra is made up of four connecting names: “Hare Krishna” and “Hare Rama.” Of these four, three are different: you have “Hare,” “Krishna,” and “Rama.” Now, in the Tetragrammaton, you have four letters: the “yad,” the “hay,” the “vav,” and the “hay.” Now of these four letters, three are different: you have the “hay,” the “yad,” and the “vav.” Furthermore, according to Kabbalah, the “hay” is considered feminine. Correct? Rabbi Shimmel: Yes, that's true. Satyaraja Dasa: So also is “Hare” considered feminine, since it refers to mother Hara—Radharani. What's more, in the Tetragrammaton, “yad” is considered masculine and “vav” is an extension of “yad.” Is this correct? Rabbi Shimmel: Yes. And I see what you're getting at. Satyaraja Dasa: Right. Krishna is masculine and Rama is His expansion. So this seems to be quite coincidental... Rabbi Shimmel: This is the first. I mean that's quite an interesting way of looking at it...

The question itself is based on a wrong conception. How did you embrace the ill-logic that God wanted us to chant his names ? Please show me anywhere an example of God/Demi Gods as having asked for chanting their names so that I correct myself. Mantras are related with our psychology. The world itself is our mind. No mind, no universe. Mantras are for our well being. Mantra is a super science. Mantra: ‘Man’ means mind and ‘Tra’ means wave or vibration. Mantra Meditation is a science, i.e., it is a technical practice that results in a predictable and reliable outcome or experience. They are the mind vibration in relationship to the Cosmos. The Science of Mantra is based on the knowledge that sound is a form of energy having structure, power, and a definite, predictable effect on the chakras and the human psyche. God possesses many invisible energy streams which have been witnessed and understood by scientific teachers of Yoga and Spiritual Science via their subtle divine vision. And on the basis of characteristics they have been named. They are also called demigods. God’s Wealth Energy is called Lakshmi, Intellectual Energy is called Saraswati, War Fighting Energy is called Durga, Creative Energy is called Brahma, Nourishing Energy is called Vishnu, Destructive Energy is called Shiva, Mental and Bodily Energy is called Hanuman, Success Energy is called Ganesh and Governing Energy is called Indra. We must contact and build a bond with whatever that is beneficial and worth imbibing for us. Further by rendering these energy centers are rendered closer for our benefit and the method of doing so is called worship of God. Hence, the need of chanting mantras. If somebody asking a question for the sake of asking, it is alright. If out of sheer curiosity to gain knowledge, it is well understood. But, one fails to understand the spirit of this question. A question impregnated with pre-conceived and untrue notion is capable of creating confusion among devotees. If you do not know the answer, then the question should not have been pre-conceived but direct.
