alenav09's curator insight, January 6, 2014 10:04 PM

It's crazy because you would not think that Kings and Queens names mean something. I always thought that Royal people always got there names due to other royal peoples in there families or names out of the bible. It blows my mind to think that they have other meanings. I think it's cool and this opens up my mind to what other names mean like Bob, Joesph, and even my name, Alena.
