What's in a name?

Suzanne, over at So You Don't Get Calls from me... , recently posted this interesting blogthings.

I thought...hmmmm...what would my name say about me? Well, I ran this test on Grandy, and thought it was total crap amazing that there was actually some information on the name.

Not sure how accurate some of this is, but it is interesting.

So...what does your name mean??




What Grandy Means



You are deeply philosophical and thoughtful. You tend to analyze every aspect of your life.

You are intuitive, brilliant, and quite introverted. You value your time alone.

Often times, you are grumpy with other people. You don't appreciate them trying to interfere in your affairs.



You are wild, crazy, and a huge rebel. You're always up to something.

You have a ton of energy, and most people can't handle you. You're very intense.

You definitely are a handful, and you're likely to get in trouble. But your kind of trouble is a lot of fun.



You are usually the best at everything ... you strive for perfection.

You are confident, authoritative, and aggressive.

You have the classic "Type A" personality.



You are very intuitive and wise. You understand the world better than most people.

You also have a very active imagination. You often get carried away with your thoughts.

You are prone to a little paranoia and jealousy. You sometimes go overboard in interpreting signals.



You are balanced, orderly, and organized. You like your ducks in a row.

You are powerful and competent, especially in the workplace.

People can see you as stubborn and headstrong. You definitely have a dominant personality.



You are a free spirit, and you resent anyone who tries to fence you in.

You are unpredictable, adventurous, and always a little surprising.

You may miss out by not settling down, but you're too busy having fun to care.

dkuroiwa said...

okay...so when i did it, the first line was "You are balanced, orderly, and organized"....HAHAHAHAHA!! What a load of crap!! I almost didn't read on...but...I did and the rest of it was pretty interesting!! Thanks for reminding about that site...now i'm going back to find out other things about me!!

Tina Coruth said...

Grandy, this was interesting. Parts of it were really, but most of it was fairly well on target. Unfortunately, the most accurate part was about me being "well-rounded." That I am, very much so. LOL

chris said...

My wife did one of these things for me and had the results cross-stiched as a surprise gift. While they are very nice, I don't think they are accurate. Still nice nonetheless

Grandy said...

Mike~ Somehow you posted your results twice. Does that mean you double agree with them? ;)

Jenn~ I would say yours went down as I don't see you as either of those things.

Travis~ Mine too.

Joyce-Anne~ Good info to know. Thanks for sharing.

ECL~ Hiding the truth are we?? ;)

dk~ Maybe you are more of these things than you give yourself credit for?

Tina~ You are too funny.

Chris~ That's very thoughtful! That would be a lot of work to put into one.

I loved your name description :) Mine was a bit...uhh, not terribly accurate:

Me- "You are the total package - suave, sexy, smart, and strong.
You have the whole world under your spell, and you can influence almost everyone you know."

HA! Don't I wish ;)

Mine was pretty accurate with my chosen name, not so much with my given name. Here it is...
