First name: Justin,
Gender: Masculine
Usage: English, French, Slovene
Pronounced: JUS-tin (English), zhoo-STEN (French)  [key]

From the Roman name Iustinus, which was derived from JUSTUS. This was the name of several early saints including Justin Martyr, a Christian philosopher of 2nd century who was beheaded in Rome.

JUSTUS
Gender: Masculine
Usage: Ancient Roman
Roman family name which meant "just" in Latin.

Middle Name: Charles,

From the Germanic name Karl, which was derived from a Germanic word which meant "man". However, an alternative theory states that it is derived from the common Germanic element heri meaning "army, warrior".
The popularity of the name in continental Europe was due to the fame of Charles the Great (742-814), commonly known as Charlemagne, a king of the Franks who came to rule over most of Europe.

Last name: Banner  Scratch that, the family name was Bubanovic before the court changed it.

Won't find Bubanovic on any name listing, but family tradition holds that it means either Big Noise or Loud Drum.

Aparently, I come from a loud family.



putting it all together:  I'm a just man who will fight for what I belive (justus) and will won't shy away from being loud about it. 8)
This is not boing to help my value based superiority complex at all    ;) :P

M'Dane name literally means "Manly Lovable Scot"...

M'Elvish name, Amras Ancalime',  is just the translation of muh dane name into Qualinesti.

My name, in its entirety:

Ryan - Gaelic origins, meaning "The little king"
Craig - Latin origins (crag), meaning "Mountain; rock"
Sylvester - Gaelic origins (silvestri), meaning "Forest; woods"

So, I am the little king of the mountains and forests.

... meaning, an elf and a dwarf got it on, and I'm the resulting bastardized half-breed offspring.   :o

Angus--Unique one in Gaelic

Macinnes--Son of Angus--In the old language Angus came out more like MacAonghais Or Innes in English, or so I am told.

Pretty simple.

Here are what the names mean for my daughter (now 22 months old) and son (now 28 days old):

Abigail- a father's pride/joy (Hebrew)
Keelia- beautiful (Gaelic)
A beauty that brings her father pride - she already has me wrapped around her finger!

Evan- Young warrior
Lucas- of the light
Young warrior of the Light - a good Paladin name, no?

As for Armstrong, it was a name given for strength in battle. Historians relate the following:
An ancient king of Scotland had his horse killed under him in battle.  His armor-bearer (until this moment named Fairbairn) immediately dismounted, and single handedly lifted the fully armored king by the thigh, and set him on the saddle of his own horse.  For this timely assistance he amply rewarded him with lands on the borders, and to perpetuate the memory of so important a service, as well as the manner in which it was performed, his royal master gave him the appellation of Armstrong.

Always on the lookout for my next noble cause.

And because a flail don't need reloading, that's why.
