Marieke Petronella Maria Theodora.

Marieke is a very old way to say "little Marie". It's kind of like -let at the end of a word in english: booklet, leaflet, piglet. But Marieke has become such a common name that nobody recognizes it like that. It has become a name on it's own.

It's pronounced as Mareeker for the english speaking people.

Great thread, very interesting to find out what our names mean!

Ria, a derivative of Rhea, is from Latinised Greek origin meaning to flow or stream. The Godess Rhea was a Titan and Mother of the Gods and among her 6 children were Poseidon, Hera, and Zeus.

However, I tell everyone its short for Superior!! Tee Hee! ;o)

My full name is Jessica Leigh Gibson, which is a fun mixture, lol.

Jessica is Hebrew and means "Rich" or "God Beholds"
Leigh is Gaelic and means a "clearing or meadow"
Gibson is Scottish (though not Gaelic) and means "Son of Gib"

My first name came about because my mom liked it, and my middle name came about because my dad liked it

Michelle Tracy Gosse

Michelle is french for child of god


Tracy
It is of Irish and Gaelic origin, and its meaning is "warlike".

Gosse is a rather odd last name, there are not many Gosse's in the world

Recorded as Goce, Goss, Gosse, Goose, and others, this is an English surname, but of Norman French origins. It has several possible origins including a derivation from a French personal name "Gosse", itself a short form of the name "Gocelin" with the first element meaning god or good
