Yes, the affect that a name has on us can partly be explained by the fact that names, when said aloud, have a vibration level that may or may not resonate with us, therefore stirring up positive or negative energies in us accordingly. Also, I think a name when spoken by different people will have a different vibratory level as well, so the way in which it affects us won't be the same.

It's a very long topic that deserves a thread by itself, but basically it's the name that was taken by you when you were first created/spat out from wherever we come from. Think of it as the original vibration that you responded to. I'm not talking about this life, but way, way, way back whenever you first came into existence. It is the name you claimed as you own. Everybody has one.

I first learnt about the theory when I was in my teens travelling thru Central Europe. I've grown up a lot since then and have discarded many theory's that were presented to me, but this one has always remained. It can be used as a way to draw strength and clarity in this life, and helps reaffirm the bond between you and the rest of the universe/whatever. Just thinking of mine gives me tingles still, 10 years after learning it. I don't want to hijack DarkLords thread though, so I'll publish something on it tonight.

That's really interesting. Again, you're someone with strong feelings when it comes to their names. Which is good because at least you'll know when a name isn't working out for you, and you can be aware of adversely affecting names so as to immediately nip the problem in the bud and avoid a situation where your relationship with someone has gone wrong and you're clueless why.

Just out of curiosity, what is your first name? If you don't mind revealing it.

I've had my own dealings with spiritual awakenings and whatnot, so I understand what you are saying.

I am very interested in this and I would be very appriciative if you posted a topic about it. I'll be keeping an eye out for it.

But, you are right. I don't want to hijack the thread. Sorry Darklord!

I wouldn't mind you hijacking this thread at all if you were to discuss an interesting topic like that! And after all, this thread has to do with names anyway.

But if you feel it's more deserving of a new thread then please do. Either way, I'm looking forward to learning more about it from you. Just don't make us wait too long...

Sorry, I posted the other reply before seeing what you posted.

You know, I am always very aware of what someone wants to be called. I don't like making up nicknames for people, even if I have known them for a very long time. My best friend insisted when I first met her that she wanted to be called by the long version of her name, even though everyone else called her by a shortened version. To this day I use her actual name. I've known my husband over ten years and I still call him his actual name.

Since you asked, I don't mind telling you that my first name is Lacy, even though that enduced a series of shivers down my spine.

Thanks for that link mate
I'd say that site was about 80% accurate for me using my full name .
But I cant help but think its the same as the astrology reports I read in the papers/magazines also .
I could apply just about all of them to my life , if I pretended I had a different star sign .
I guess thats the way they designed them though , to pretty much apply to anyone .
Cheers

Trick Svehlak! That's got a nice ring to it. Yeah, nicknames are cool as long as they don't have any negative affects. People should learn to be more sensitive to their inner reactions to the various names they're called. Otherwise you won't even realize when a name is draining positive energy from you, creating minute friction between you and the other person, or just making you feel uncomfortable or unpleasant inside.

lol! I don't know what you're talking about... I think Lacy is such a pretty name!

That's great that you're aware of what names you liked to be called, as well as what names you call others by. If people learned to pay more attention to names, I think it would help them enormously.

I know I said earlier that I don't have an opinion on numerology, but what I really think is that both Numerology and Astrology are genuine fields that should be given serious consideration. But a lot of the freely available stuff on it is bulls**t. You just need to learn to filter out the commercial nonsense from the real thing.

Eh, it might be to someone else, but saying it bothers me to no end. I will give you that it is immensely better than the one I picked out as a replacement as a child (Lila)...


I may have missed it, but do you mind giving us the nickname your friend called you that bothered you so much? Was it a variation of your name or something unrelated?

Yes, Lacy is definately better.

My first name is Adil. My friend started to call me 'Adie', pronounced like the letters A & D said in a row. So yeah, it's a variation of my actual name. And I really can't say I have any problem with it. In fact, 2 of my friends simultaneously started to call me that, but it only induced a negative response in me with one of them. The other still calls me that, and it doesn't affect me negatively at all. Like I said, the same name called by different people can change the response.

That is really interesting. Were you ever able to figure out why it only affected you when the one person called you that? Do you think it has anything to do with that person's voice? Maybe something in the level his voice resonates at when saying it is different than the other persons.

I actually used to know an Adil. I would tell you how he introduced himself to me (And how he told me to pronounce his name) but it isn't appropriate for the forums. Plus, it can be offensive unless you have a crude side to your humor. It was funny to us at the time (and still makes me giggle a little).

You took the words right outta my mouth. That's exactly what I think is the reason. All to do with the vibration of the word+ vibration of the person's voice. Initially I wanted to add this explanation to the original post, but thought maybe it'd be better if I avoided that angle and see what explanations fellow ATSers would give me. But you guys got right to it, as expected.

By the way, I've got a sense of humor
U2U me what your friend Adil said...

"my niece just named her son that....i wanted to smack her"

LOL! HAHAHAHA!!!

So AD huh? I still get called that by some people, one in particular all the time, with no -ve effects. Can't say I prefer either name. I'm essentially ok with both. Except for those rare cases like I mentioned in my OP.

Hey,

Just finished writing down how I found out about my original name. It's pretty long winded and turned out more as a story, so that's where I filed it. If anyone's interested, I can give more info.

The story can be found here

Have you ever seen or experienced something like this?


Yes. There is someone close to me who has a nickname/pet name for me. And I prefer that name. But when they call me by my real first name - I know something is wrong. They only use my first name for very very serious conversations. I almost cringe when I hear them say my name. Strange.

Most people in my life (minus my parents) have a nickname for me....and I prefer them. They are more personal and meaningful to me. My first name is more formal IMO and used mostly by people who do not know me well


I am not fond of my first name. In fact, it is so common and I hate to be common, that in Jr. High, I changed the spelling of it so it would be "different". LOL

Names are so much IMO.

And forget "honey" "sweetie" "baby" I find those all condescending and make me want to puke honestly and I can't take a person seriously for using them.


it's funny - with pet names - terms of endearment - it all depends on who uses them

"sweetie" coming from one person can be a totally different thing than "sweetie" from the next person

you hate them now - but you might be surprised how much you like it when it comes from the right person. From a waitress - maybe annoying, from your significant other - magic

I ended up at a cafe one morning years ago - a place I never really went to on a regular basis

the waitress there called me "puddin" :-)

I actually went there on purpose ever after - because I realized - I liked being called puddin'

who knew? :-)

but it only really worked coming from her - she was a very sweet lady
