Changing name

Post by AnnaliMoon »

I am changing my name (it's time for a fresh start). My first name is Anna (I want something that is similar that doesn't deviate too much but has meaning. I am conflicted on my middle name. I like so far:

Magena
Moon

I want it to be an M middle name. I don't want Morgana (it's played out). I need suggestions and lots of them. I'm going to meditate on these too. Yes I am doing this legally also.

I didn't know where else to put this post! Thanks in advance! smileylove

So far I like Annali (Annalee) for my first name. It means Graceful Meadow and it honors my mother in law who passed away.

Annali is SO BEAUTIFUL

Out of the two suggestions you posted, I really like Magena. Actually I really like it a lot.

Thanks!

So far I am going with Annali Moon [my married last name].

I have two last names and I am getting rid of one of them. I am not drawn to any moon except our own Moon (Earth's Moon).

Thoughts?

Something about your attraction to the moon is kind of knocking at the back of my mind. I think it means something, but my tired brain doesn't want to process it.

Ever since me and my husband came to to conclusion to shorten our last names (he took mine, I took his and we feel it's a mistake), I am just going to pretty much re-do my whole name. And I wanted an M name for my middle name so that way it wasn't so different from my middle name now. Moon it is!

Annali Moon :-)

This will depend on which state/county you live in and will vary from place to place. It's best to ask your county center or check out the county web page.

A moon of Jupiter was named after Metis: Her name means "cleverness." Zeus was told that a son from Metis would destroy him, so he swallowed her up to prevent such a possiblity. Not long after, he developed a raging headache and asked Hephesteus to crack open his skull, thus releasing Athena, the goddess of wisdom.

...aaand that was the only cool "m" moon I could find. ;)
