    I am Stefanie, the crowned one.

    My husband is Juha, God is gracious. (Juha is the finnish variation of John) His second name is Antti, Men Warrior, his third name Henrik, House ruler (uhm... yea). In Finland there's a saying that a beloved kid has at least 3 names. That's why many finnish people have minimum 3 names.

    My daugher is Janna Yinara Aava. Janna, God is gracious (again). Yinara is a name made up by me, I just liked the sound. Aava is a finnish name and means the open sea - but can also be seen a variation of Eva which means Life.

    Nice list, thanks for sharing!

    WOW!!! Whoever wrote this must be gettin' some serious lovin' from a girl named Rebecca! Hahaha!


    Truly beautiful, both inside and out. She laughs a lot and is always there for you, willing to listen and help. Rebecca is someone everyone likes from the beginning. You just have to look at her and you know she's an interesting and friendly person. She's very determined to make the best of her life and is charmingly competitive at certain things. She's great fun to be around and always makes you feel happy.
    Rebecca is the best friend anyone could have. Once you get to know her you hope she'll be your friend forever.
    Goodbye Europe! Hello California! Home sweet home.

    Surename
    Renate = Reborn, born again

    I don`t know if I had a life befor this one or if I have a life after this one. The only thing I know: I have to master this life I actually have and this is more than enough.

    Family name:
    Schoen = this means "beautiful", and beauty is in the eye of the beholder. What I can say: I feel beautiful inside

    well my first name Lisa has already been mentioned but my middle name is "Maree" and its description is me to a tee


    Maree and Beatriu are ladies with character: they are strong and self-assured whilst remaining undeniably feminine... Forthright and outspoken, they can also be rather aloof, with ice around the edges at times. Self-controlled as well as impulsive; they can be domineering and occasionally very hot-tempered. This duality is the reason for a certain amount of inner-conflict. Sensitive and touchy, they can be known to lose their cool if their ego feels threatened as they are somewhat unsure of themselves. This disconcerting tendency to bounce from one extreme to another in a matter of seconds can be observed in all spheres of their lives. For example, Maree and Beatriu are capable of living their lives with great discipline, scrupulous and focused for a length of time, then allow themselves to drift aimlessly into apathy and indifference. Shy and retiring one day, plucky and defiant the next. Depending on the moment, they can imitate the raving mad Virgo of the zodiac or the level-headed and unshakeable Scorpio... At the same time, these are women of great strength and courage who are extremely determined: once they have set their hearts and minds on something there is no point in trying to convince them otherwise, you´ll be wasting your breath! With them, anything is possible - anything and it´s opposite that is. They are quite highly-strung and need to be active, and physical exercise can provide an excellent outlet for this excess nervous energy. Even as children they are prone to mood swings and loathe being told what to do. They can often be jealous, and are genuine but uncompromising and intense in their relationships with others. They will probably prefer building dens to playing with dolls, especially if they have a birthday on the 5th, 8th, 14th, 17th, 23rd or 26th of the month, if their life Path Number is equal to 5 or 8, or if they were born in May or August. Furthermore, and especially if they were born on the 4th, 7th, 13th, 16th, 22nd, 25th or 31st, or during the month of April or July, they are likely to experience significant setbacks and complexes. These are virtuous creatures and their parents should take care to ensure that they are conscious of their value, helping them to overcome their lack of self-confidence.

    I have felt that way since the very first day I became acquainted with you.
    Sometimes, when there's a raging fire,
    it's best not to try to put it out with gasoline.

    Christine: Meaning : Follower of Christ; More Information :Christine has evolved from the Latin word Christianus meaning a follower of Christ, in other words a Christian.
    Ok, that fits.
    Middle Name: Anne: Meaning : Gracious; More Information: St Anne was the mother of the Virgin Mary. There is no Biblical basis for this, though Anna is one of the people who meets the infant Jesus at the Temple of Jerusalem.

    My husband: Ron: Meaning : Rules with good judgment; More Information : Ron is a panchayat town in Gadag district in the Indian state of Karnataka. It is called Dronapur in ancient times. There are temples built by ancient architect Dronacharya.
    Ok, we'll, the "meaning" make sense.

    Cool website. Thanks for sharing!
