Reply to what is the meaning of your name

Lovely question from Sharon.Where I come from children are mostly named taking into consideration the circumstances surronding their birth.I will not be wrong if I say such children come with their names. For example twins have their constant name ie Ziem and Naab and the one after twins is Kogh. In the same vain a reincarnated child is called Dery (male) and Yuora(female).But other factors could also lead to the naming of children. For instance my middle name Ivielidong literally means getting enmity over doing good.Although my name suggests that when you do good you don't necessarily get good in return, I have not hesistated to do good when ever I gen the opportunity to do so.

What a beautiful middle name.

What a beautiful middle name. I love how it doesn't mold your life but just places emphasis on it.
