what’s in a name?

japanese name

The calligraphy is authentic and was made by a friend who was also a volunteer at the clinic in Thailand.

In Japanese, my name means “True Blessing”. Gee whiz, no pressure there. Just because my name means I have to be good doesn’t mean I have to deprive myself right? Then again, maybe there’s a reason why we were given our names. I observed how some people live up to their names, literally. If it’s not true, then where do you think nicknames originated? What do you think?
