LOVE my name, I think it was inspired. "Sheila" means "musical" and I am able to play almost every musical instrument just a few minutes after playing with it for a bit. (Play by ear) and music is my comfort. Middle name means "song", so together, "musical song" and they didn't know the meaning of my name when they named me.

Hi Amrita,
Wow, names in India just like in many Asian countries have real meanings in them. I like the meaning of your name, life giving water. Very symbolic of your real life right now where you impart the knowledge of God to others. Thanks for your visit and comments. God bless you always.

Hi Dhemz,
My whole name stinks, lol. It is Melencio, lol. I was named after my grandfather whose name was Melecio. My father put an n to the name to make it sound better (although it still stinks, hehehe,lol. The nickname my father gave me was boy and I hated it even more because it sounded like an errand boy, lol. So when I was in college I changed my nickname to Mel and it sticks to this day. My wife use to call me Melencio just to tease me. But when somebody calls me boy, I really get mad, lol. I never would want to change my name. It's Mel till the day I die. Maxine would sound very nice to you. Thanks for your visit and comments. God bless you all always.

Hi Shiela,
That's wonderful to know the meaning of your name. I did not know that you can play many musical instruments by ear. That means your talent is inborn. Thanks for this question that you supplied for this blog. Thanks also for your visit and comments. God bless you always.

Your name don't stink at all KuyaM, medyo vinatge nga lang lol. I love my nickname but not my real name, it stinks too lol. Mama said that She told Papa to register me as Rosalie but Papa was a little silly and can't forget her former girlfriend whose name is Linda, so he registered me as Rosalinda wahhhhh... Buti na lang may sikat na artistanng Rosalinda lol..

UMMA said...

Im satisfied with my name, its the city of Northeastern France hahahah. But what's in the name that matters? I guess, it's your persona + character that truly bears significance... wink*

Hi Rose,
Nakakatuwa naman pala ang origin nang mga pangalan natin, lol. Salbahe ang tatay mo, pinangalan ka sa dating syota niya, lol, sana isinumbong mo sa mama mo, lol. Anyway, maganda nga ang Rosalinda, katunog nuong Mexican telenobela na ni remake ni Carla Abellana sa GMA7. Mas maganda naman yung Rosalinda kaysa Melencio o Boy, lol. Thanks for your visit and comments. God bless you all always.

Hi Umma,
I'm so glad you explained the origin of your name because it was such a mystery to me. I thought it was a Swedish or Scandinavian name. Anyway your name is very unique and is easily remembered. Thanks for your visit and comments. God bless you all always.

Actually Kuya ang name ni umma is not umma lol, ang umma is mama in korea... Bisita muna ako bao matulog, am dead tured wahhh. Magkikita kits kami bukas nina bakla.. Hope all is well sa inyo dyan.. Ingat lagi.

Mel Avila Alarilla said...

Hi Rose,
Hindi naman ipinaliwanag ni Umma na hindi Umma ang panagalan niya at nakuha daw iyon sa isang lugar sa France. Anyway, a name is a name is a name. Thanks of your explanation and your visit. God bless you all always.

Dhemz said...

Mel Avila Alarilla said...

Hi Dhemz,
Natutuwa naman ako at natawa ka sa sagutan namin ni Rose tungkol sa pangalan namin. Ngayon ko lang nalaman na ang pangalan ni Umma ay Nancy. Thanks for informing me. Pero sa tutuo lang, asiwang asiwa ako sa dating palayaw ko na boy. Para talagang tsimoy, hehehe, lol. Thanks for your visit and comments. God bless you all always.
