    I have seen three interpretations of the meaning of my first name. Dark River, Black Streams and Dark Blue. I think they all seem pretty cool. My middle name stands for "Beloved." Which is pretty straight forward.

    My middle name... maybe I should have been a Lions fan.


    LAURENCE (1)

    Gender: Masculine
    Usage: English Pronounced: LAWR-ənts [key]

    From the Roman cognomen Laurentius, which meant "from Laurentum". Laurentum was a city in ancient Italy, its name probably deriving from Latin laurus "laurel". Saint Laurence was a 3rd-century deacon and martyr from Rome. According to tradition he was roasted alive on a gridiron because, when ordered to hand over the church's treasures, he presented the sick and poor. Due to the saint's popularity, the name came into general use in the Christian world (in various spellings). In the Middle Ages this name was common in England, partly because of a second saint by this name, a 7th-century archbishop of Canterbury. Likewise it has been common in Ireland due to the 12th-century Saint Laurence O'Toole (whose real name was Lorcán). Since the 19th century the spelling Lawrence has been more common, especially in America.

    STEPHEN
    Gender: Masculine
    Usage: English, Biblical
    Pronounced: STEEV-ən (English), STEF-ən (English) [key]
    From the Greek name Στεφανος (Stephanos) meaning "crown". Saint Stephen was a deacon who was stoned to death, as told in Acts in the New Testament, and he is regarded as the first Christian martyr. Due to him, the name became common in the Christian world. It was popularized in England by the Normans.
    This was the name of kings of England, Serbia, and Poland, as well as ten popes. It was also borne by the first Christian king of Hungary (10th century), who is regarded as the patron saint of that country. More recent bearers include British physicist Stephen Hawking (1942-) and the American author Stephen King (1947-).

    AARON

    Gender: Masculine

    Usage: English, Biblical, Biblical Latin, Biblical Greek

    Other Scripts: אַהֲרֹן (Ancient Hebrew), Ααρων (Ancient Greek)

    Pronounced: AR-ən (English), ER-ən (English) [key]
    From the Hebrew name אַהֲרֹן ('Aharon) which is most likely of unknown Egyptian origin. Other theories claim a Hebrew derivation, and suggest meanings such as "high mountain" or "exalted". In the Old Testament this name was borne by the older brother of Moses and the first high priest of the Israelites. He acted as a spokesman for his brother, and carried a miraculous rod. As an English name, Aaron has been in use since the Protestant Reformation.
