What's In a Name?

I was doing some research on my see where my visitors come from and what search words they use to find my blog. In the course of that research, I came across an interesting page that taught me all sorts of things about my own name. (I especially love the fact that I'm poorly "envoweled." Ha! Check it out: Etymology*: Forename: Origin: Greek (Root: Timothy)Meaning: Honored by God (I've also heard it defined as "honoring God."

Top 5 Facts:

  1. 25% of the letters are vowels. Of one million first and last names we looked at, 92.6% have a higher vowel make-up. This means you are poorly envoweled.
  2. Backwards, it is Mit Nnelg... nice ring to it, huh?
  3. In Pig Latin, it is Imtay Ennglay.
  4. In ASCII binary, Tim Glenn is: 01010100 01101001 01101101 00100000 01000111 01101100 01100101 01101110 01101110 .
  5. People with this first name are probably: Male. So, there's a 98% likelihood you sweat just thinking of the price of shaver blades.

3 Things You Didn't Know:

  1. Based on your name and a process known to only three people on the planet, we can tell you that your Power Animal is the: Cane Toad.
  2. Your 'Numerology' number is 4. Unfortunately, numerology is a joke. But if it wasn't, it would mean that you are practical, tenacious, traditional, and serious. You are well organized and have a strong work ethic.
  3. According to the US Census Bureau°, 0.104% of US residents have the first name 'Tim' and 0.02% have the surname 'Glenn'. The US has around 300 million residents, so we guesstimate there are 62 'Tim Glenn's in the U.S.

Interesting huh? I found this at a website called: Is This Your Name?
