Do names necessarily influence people’s character?

Names depict character No wonder Delilah betrayed Samson; her name in Hebrew means betrayal. Though usually ignored, names speak volumes about character, wealth, blessings, name it.

Names depict character

No wonder Delilah betrayed Samson; her name in Hebrew means betrayal. Though usually ignored, names speak volumes about character, wealth, blessings, name it.
 
I just pity those who give fancy meaningless names to their children, no wonder some people end up living a meaningless life, one without focus and achievement.

This is why you should do some research on your name and even change it if it’s necessary.

A name will bless or curse you. Names given after circumstances will always affect the bearer. For instance, in some communities, kids are named after months, a mother’s health or even a family inheritance. Kids get affected in a positive or negative way, depending on the circumstances under which they were named. Surely when they named you Nyiragahinda, it meant eternal sorrow, and that’s why you are suffering now.

It was of no surprise that Alpha won the Tusker Project Fame Season 3 prize; his name means ‘first’ so he had to be the first. Meanwhile, Akazuba at her Senior Six secondary school level emerged as Miss Kigali and later Miss East Africa, and just like the sun, she will keep shining. Still doubting that names have a strong impact?

Undoubtedly, a name will shape a person’s character! Names explain why many are addicted to alcohol, liars, and have certain habits they cannot do away with including having chronicle humor.

Some names have attachments to demons and gods. Have you ever taken time to analyse one specific name and the people who have it? It surprises me to find that many namesakes usually have common traits. For instance, Diana was a goddess while Jezebel was a proud arrogant biblical character. Count yourself lucky if you bear such names and you are a positive person.

Names go as far as affecting siblings and families. Because of his name, Joshua of the Bible and his offsprings served God, throughout their life. Meanwhile, a woman in Uganda blamed her children’s death on a name that she had inherited from her great grandmother; she was called Kayaga meaning wind. Kayaga’s five children got blown away out of life, before she changed her name.

Inherited names also affect one’s character. I bet the deceased resurrect through a person who inherits their name. Ever heard of people who speak, talk or handle issues the same way their deceased family member did, perhaps it’s that name that is to blame.

Your name is you, so before you become a joke and the community gossip, please, do yourself a favor and find out whether a name has something to do with your irresponsible character.
