    Default Irene

    http://www.scrapbookmax.com/gallery/...20760&cat=1463

    came from 11 brothers and sisters.Most of them had their name drawn out of a hat.I was special as one sister named me after her favorite song IRENE GOODNIGHT.Now I am Blessed ha ha.


    IRENE___


    In Greek mythology, Eirene or Irene was the goddess who personified peace. Although she did not play an active part in many myths, Eirene was still a source of inspiration for several ancient artists, writers, and poets. Child of Zeus and Themis, the goddess Eirene was known by the name of Pax in Roman mythology.
    The name is very popular in Spain, where it was the 6th most popular name in 2006

    The name Sue, Susie, Susan, Susanna etc...means Lily in Hebrew and French

    The name Arlene means "Oath" or "Pledge" in Irish/Celtic
    In English it is a varient of Carlene and Charlene. In French it is derived from a feminine diminutive of Charles meaning Manly and is a medieval givin name.

    My mom had considered naming me "Tina". But my dad said that "Tina" was more fitting for a tiny person and neither of them were "Tiny", so he didn't think the name would be fitting.

    Before I was born, must have been the year before, my mom and dad asked my dad's cousin Susie to come stay with them during summer break. She was a teenager. They were looking for a babysitter and told her she could make a little money during the summer that way. So she did. The following year I was born and they ended up naming me after her and my Great Grandmother. Then my middle name came from my Aunt Arlene, my mom's sister. So my names are from both sides.

    I agree. It was lots of fun reading about the origin of the names. It reminded me how we decided on names for our kids. My youngest son was supposed to be a Stephen, but when he came in like a "747" (fast), he became a Douglas (like the airliner).
