What's in a name? A few years ago, I heard a name that was new to me. Now, if this is your name, or that of a loved one, please forgive me.
I asked myself, when I heard (read) the name, "Why would anybody on God's green earth ever hang a name like that on a pore (southern pronunciation) little, defenseless baby?"
Well, I have two friends who named their little boys Zander, which is why I didn't ask it out loud.
So, this morning, I looked it up. Come to find out, it is an abbreviated form of the name, Alexander, and its origin is Slavic and Greek. It means, "strong defender ".
My apologies for the critical view that I had taken. When I realize that I am wrong about something, I'll be the first to admit it.
More power to all you little Zanders out there! May you live up to the meaning of your name and defend the weak and powerless!
And don't pulverize them when they poke fun at your name, please.
