Blair (my "real" name) is gaelic and means something like green field/field/battlefield (when used for the masculine, iirc)

And, apparently Analise means grace or favor.

Elennare means star fire in Sindarin.

...ok, so, technically that's improper syntax and it actually reads "fire star," but I took a little poetic liberty because I liked Elennare better than Narelen.

First name, Dustin - variant of Norse Torsten, meaning Thor's stone. I was named after Dustin Hoffman.

Middle name, Chad - can't find any meanings of it, but St. Chad was Bishop of Northumbria and Mercia, and it may be derived from the Old English name Ceadda.
