Learning about your name

A few weeks ago, Larry Ferlazzo published an entry on his blog with a number of resurces to find out information about our name.

Top of the list came What a Lovely Name, where we can just type in our first name to learn about its meaning and origin. The site also gives us the opportunity to create a logo for our name.

As language learners What a Lovely Name can help us increase our English vocabulary and develop our reading skills while having a good time.

Another site to find out about our name that Larry Ferlazzo recommends is Public Profiler, which will allow us to trace the origin of our surname and see how fast it spread around the world.

You can also read this BBC news article about it.
