What’s in a name? – Elena

What’s in a name?

I have always been interested in the meaning of names and how much we get influenced by its power and character. I believe we are influenced by the education we receive and people we are surrounded by in our childhood, e.g. our parents, siblings, friends… but I also think we represent a lot of what this name means.

I would like to dedicate this first post of the blog’s new section “What’s in a name?”, to my sister Elena, as yesterday it was her birthday.

Elena means “as bright as the sun”, “dazzling”, “shining”.

¿Qué hay detrás de un nombre?

Siempre me ha interesado el significado de los nombres y cómo nos influencia su poder y carácter. Creo que nuestra forma de ser está determinada por nuestra educación y por la gente que nos rodea en nuestra infancia (padres, hermanos, amigos…) pero también pienso que tenemos mucho de lo que nuestro nombre representa y significa.

Me gustaría dedicar este primera entrada de la nueva sección What’s in a name?, a mi hermana Elena, ya que ayer fue su cumpleaños.

Elena significa “brillante como el sol”, “deslumbrante”, “aquella que arde o resplandece”.
