What’s the Hidden Meaning of Your Name?

Take our quiz and maybe these personal revelations will blow your mind!

Did you know?

Some Cultures Give People Secret Names

You’re used to hearing about celebrities who change their names to something more glamorous, but finding their birth names doesn’t take more than a quick internet search. Historically, though, some cultures in places like Eastern Asia and the Middle East give their newborn citizens both public and private names. Everyone in the community would know someone’s public name. Only close friends and family members would know the private name. The Ancient Egyptians even had a story about the god Isis trading a poison antidote to Ra for her true name, which held significant power. Isis then used this knowledge to become closer to the powerful deity Horus.

How to Play?

Our personality quizzes are set up a little differently than your basic trivia quiz, but you’ve probably seen their kind around. Rather than having to choose the right answer from a list of multiple choice options, in this case, there is no “right answer”! (Two plus two will always be four, but every Golden Girls character is equally awesome.)

So, stop stressing. Just click on the answer that suits you best, and enjoy the ride. These quizzes are just for fun but who knows – you might just learn something about yourself along the way!
