Posted:My screen name just comes from my avitar doodle.....the doodle is nicknamed Skully.... Skully was taken as a s/n so I added the duggery bit and got skulduggery. I put it in one of these baby name search thingies and strangely enough no one has named their child Skulduggery..... how odd is that? Its dictionary meaning is trickery.

I put my real name in the baby name thingie and got this:-

1. Lynne (Anglo-Saxon) A cascade

2. Lynne (English) Abbreviation of Lynnette who accompanied Sir Gareth on a knightly quest in Arthurian legend; variant of the Irish Gaelic word lann meaning house; church.

The last one is strange because the old man that live next door to my granny when I was a child used to insist on calling me Lynnette even though I kept telling him it was just Lynne. Seems he was right all along!

Hannah means Favor; grace. Biblical mother of the prophet Samuel. I knew it came from the Christian Bible, just wasnt sure where.

ieuan you could also have been Yani, which is swedish for John. or Yorn with a mark above the o which is German for John.

Posted:I once looked up "god" in a thesaurus, and the only word I didn't recognize was numen. According to dictionary.com, it is:

1. A presiding divinity or spirit of a place.
2. A spirit believed by animists to inhabit certain natural phenomena or objects.
3. Creative energy; genius.

I like the idea of being the god of the very small amount of space inhabited by my body.

My given name, Aaryn... well, my mom wanted to name me Aaron. My dad wanted to name me Arran (there's an island off the western coast of Scotland, that when seen from the right place looks EXACTLY like the body of a dead giant laying in repose). Somehow, they negotiated it to Aaryn. Where the Y came from is probably best left alone; some things Man was not meant to know.

In Germany it's kinda derogatory and noone uses it any longer since our feminists fought for getting it out of the dictionaries. Yeah, well, whatever.... It was used for unmarried women (like Miss in English) and means something like little woman. Mmh... I am so I guess it fits - in many ways ubblol

satyagraha

Posted:Umm OK.. So I thinnk satyagraha was orginally (and probably still is) a concept in eastern religions (eg buddhism, hinduism) which meant 3 different things:
1: 'sat': truth, openness, honesty, fairness
2: 'ahimsa': refusal to inflict injury upon others, non-violence, including not approving of any other person's violence or failing to relieve another person's pain, its about not being duped into violence
3: 'tapasya': willingness for self-sacrifice, endurance

Then Gandhi kind of used as a personal philosophy meaning 'non-violent'/passive resistance ('the practice of applying power to achieve socio-political goals through symbolic protects, economic or political non-cooperation, civil disobedience and other methods, without the use of physical violence'... an easier definition is 'non-violent protest as a means of revolution')

I chose it cause it's a philosophy I believe in.. and I wanted to spread it around...
