Bethany means house of poverty.

Now if that isn't something to look forward to, I don't know what is. :roll:

Well, you have to take my first and middle name together so it makes me sound cooler.

Stephanie = crowned one, from the greek
Louise = maiden warrior, from french or something.

But call me Xena and I'll send you spongedemon's way. ¬¬

Florence: Blooming/flourishing/flower
Renee: Reborn
Paris: Everyone's guess on how we italians got this last name, is that it was orginally parrish, and it was given to orphans who were being taken in by, well, the parrish. Or, it was Parisi and they dropped the i.

I like the name Randall.
In fact, one of my favorite indie-folk singer's name is Randall Goodgame.

John - I've always heard it stood for "gracious gift of God." Tim's translation is close enuff.
Haliburton - I've been coming up snake-eyes in my efforts to find out what this means, other than that it's Scottish in origin.
Christopher - Christ-bearer

Funny how that should come up just as he releases a song entitled "A Maker Of Crowns." 8)

Indeterminate? Nope. Straight out of the Bible. 1 Samuel 17:4: "And there went out a champion out of the camp of the Philistines, named Goliath, of Gath, whose height was six cubits and a span."

So I presume that if we take you and five of your family members and stack you one-on-top-of-the-other...Goliath would still have stood taller.
Quikrete - the biggest name in concrete since Jimmy Hoffa.

Well, yeah, if it was spelled with a c instead of a k. Throughout my childhood, I always had teachers quote Bill Cosby to me; "What's a cubit?" At my wedding, I wanted to have Matthew 6:27 be read, but my wife put the kibosh on that one....
