QuoteSo question: how seriously should we consider name meanings? And if a name (e.g. Jacob) is not good in meaning (it means supplanter or deceiver) should a person have it changed and how should they go about it (from a Biblical not natural perspective) if they do?
Quote from: DiscipleHeLovesToo on July 31, 2011, 02:35:35 pmjust my opinion, but i think names meant something different in OT times; they were more of prophecies than they were labels; and every time someone called you by name you were reminded of the prophecy about you - faith comes by hearing. today, names are merely labels for most people, so i don't think it really matters UNLESS you hear a meaning when you hear your name.
