EDWARD
Means "rich guard", derived from the Old English elements ead "rich, blessed" and weard "guard". Saint Edward the Confessor was the king of England shortly before the Norman Conquest. Because of his popularity this name remained in use after the conquest (most other Old English names were replaced by Norman ones), and was even the name of eight subsequent kings of England. Edward is also one of the few Old English names to be used throughout Europe.

ROBERT
Means "bright fame", derived from the Germanic elements hrod "fame" and beraht "bright". The Normans introduced this name to Britain. It belonged to three kings of Scotland, including Robert the Bruce who restored the independence of Scotland from England in the 14th century.

KILLEN
A friend of mine wrote a book on Ulster Surnames and I had to get him to put an entry in for me because he wasn't going to bother. Mind you, I've forgotten what it was! I think I'm ofGallowglass descent. Now where's that sword... :twisted:

So in my meanderings, I find out one meaning of Kubit is "elbow" in the very obscure Misumalpan language. Exciting stuff, but there it is. Glad my surname isn't SNÖTÖN, as it's meaning (literally) is "to blow one's nose" in Norwegian...
Wheee!

Where do you find this stuff? Ha!

For the rest o' my name...

Hope means the expectation of something desired
Warren is French for stock yard.

So - house of poverty expectation of something desired stock yard.

What a horribly silly name.

I'd be #00502d. I like that color. It's a green with enough red to make it dark and blue to make it beautiful (without being teal) and not an overload of yellow. Kind of pine-ish but less dark and more blueish. I love green.

i would be the darkest red due to my tendency to react, almost to an extreme, with my emotions rather than with my head.

I would be white, cause it looks cool on black.

Or I'd be the crayon sharpener.
