Well, my name Rachel has two meanings.

The actual meaning is: innocent ewe/lamb

haha, me=innocent? Right

But there is a second-probably more realistic-it's something Emma and I came up with, well, okay mostly Emma-anyways, the second meaning is...

evil.

EMMA

Gender: Feminine

Usage: English, French, Italian, Finnish, Dutch

Pronounced: EM-a (English) [key]
Derived from Germanic ermen meaning "whole" or "universal". This name was borne by the mother of Edward the Confessor and by an 11th-century German saint. This is also the name of the central character, the matchmaker Emma Woodhouse, in Jane Austen's novel 'Emma'.

There you are emma

Here's you skully:

Quote :
CAROLINA

Gender: Feminine

Usage: Italian, Spanish, Portuguese, English

Pronounced: kahr-o-LEE-nah (Italian, Spanish), KER-o-lien-a (English) [key]
Latinate feminine form of CAROLUS. This is the name of two American states: North and South Carolina. They were named for Charles I, king of England.

Quote :
CAROLUS

Gender: Masculine

Usage: Ancient Germanic (Latinized)
Latin form of CHARLES

Quote :
CHARLES

Gender: Masculine

Usage: English, French

Pronounced: CHAHR-ulz (English), SHARL (French) [key]
From the Germanic name Karl, which was derived from a Germanic word which meant "man". However, an alternative theory states that the name is derived from the common Germanic element heri meaning "army, warrior". The most noteworthy bearer of this name was Charles the Great, commonly known as Charlemagne, a king of the Franks who came to rule over most of Europe. Several Holy Roman Emperors bore this name, as well as kings of England, France, Spain, Portugal, Sweden and Hungary. Other famous bearers include naturalist Charles Darwin who revolutionized biology with his theory of evolution, and novelist Charles Dickens who wrote such works as 'Great Expectations' and 'A Tale of Two Cities'.

Polly: The name Polly is an adaptation of the name Mary so, [Hebrew] 'Bitterness' although although hebrew in its orgin has become one of the most consistently popular names for girls since the Christian era.

My first name means... ahh, theres a lot...
Quote :
From the Greek name Αικατερινη (Aikaterine). The etymology is debated: it could derive from the earlier Greek name ĎΕκατερινη (Hekaterine), which came from Ďεκατερος (hekateros) "each of the two"; it could derive from the name of the goddess HECATE; it could be related to Greek αικια (aikia) "torture"; or it could be from a Coptic name meaning "my consecration of your name". The Romans associated it with Greek καθαρος (katharos) "pure" and changed their spelling from Katerina to Katharina to reflect this.
The name belonged to a 4th-century saint and martyr from Alexandria who was tortured on the famous Catherine wheel. Another saint by this name was Catherine of Siena, a 14th-century mystic. This name was also borne by two empresses of Russia, including Catherine the Great, and by three of Henry VIII's wives.
so it could mean pure... or torture? haha, thats werid

We'll I technically have two first names (parents couldn't decide which one to call me so they compromised and named me both, go figure.)

But I think for confusions sake I'll just get the definition for the one I go by xD

Kaylee: Variant of Katherine. 'Pure. ' Variant of Kay and Kayla 'keeper of the keys; pure. The origin of the name Kaylee is American, and the meaning is closely related to the name Chaeli - Which translates into Who is Like God. It is also closely related to Kelly which stands for - Strong One, Warrior or War.

Strange, so it means Pure, Keeper of the Keys, Who is Like God & Strong One or Warrior. Interesting.
