When I was younger I used to find joy in discovering what peoples names meant.
So naturally I looked up my own several times.
My name means "Lioness of God"
I looked up the definition of "Lion" and found-
Now naturally I do not believe that I am a cat. Nor do I by ANY means believe that I'm a celebrity. But I do hope to live up to having strength, courage, influence, and maybe even charm.
I want to live up to my name. Lioness of God. I want to have courage to follow His example, His teachings, His commandments. I do have courage to do these things. I will do all that He requires of me. Without Him what is the point? There is none. Heavenly Father and His Son Jesus Christ are my everything.

I don't really believe much of anything is a coincidence.
God has a plan and everything we do is incorporated in that plan. So even if my birth parents didn't do much for me. They did a little bit when they named me Arielle.
