A new meaning for my name

Years ago I read a baby name book where it gave the meaning of Leslie as "from the dark hole." Niiiiice, right?

Tonight at a family get together, my niece (who's pregnant) had a baby name book. This book says that Leslie means, "feisty, beautiful, and smart."

Ummmmm, I guess I have a new baby name authority. I LIKE my name now!!!

A perfect name for you!

Much better...and much more accurate.

My name...which I of course could not stand as a kid because it seemed so "different" than the other names...means "Light" or "Torch." Now I am honored to have a name with such a great meaning.

I think some of these things are hit and miss. Depending on the books you read, you might find you've got about 5 different names possibly.

As for the race, that is hard, and I wouldn't want to try it, just because it wouldn't suit me, but of course I will always respect you immensely for it.

WELl DONE again, and best wishes

Hi! Thanks for leaving a comment on my blog! =) And, I'd agree about the name Leslie meaning "feisty, beautiful, and smart." I'd say that fits me pretty well!

I love your name. I actually have considered it if I have a girl in the future because I grew up on Leslie Ave. :)

Great job on the 30K! Love the list of food at the stations.

I like your name and the "new" definition suits you perfectly.

Julianne -- Awwww, thanks, blog daughter!

leslie said...

Eileen -- Isn't it funny how our perspective changes. I like your name's meaning too and it's very well suited to you!

leslie said...

Matt -- You are abolutely right about the baby name books. And yeah, running long isn't for everyone, that's for sure. Thanks for the encouragement as always!

leslie said...

Colette -- Yours probably means something wonderful, I would think. :)

leslie said...

Leslie G -- Thanks for stopping by. Our name rocks, doesn't it?

leslie said...

Jen -- What a nice surprise. I didn't grow up on Leslie Lane, but I do have that street sign, which my church friends stole for me when I was in high school. (Yes, I saw the irony even then!) It hangs in my pantry now.

Katie -- Thanks so much!

Kim -- Thanks for the tag. I played and it was fun!
