Today is about encouraging people to learn about the historical meanings and influences of their names.
My given names are Amanda Dawn. Amanda is stems from Latin and means 'worthy of love'. Dawn (the name I am known by) is self-explanatory. My surname (which I'm not telling you) is a twisting of a medieval French word meaning 'cunning'. Unfortunately, it is also (in English) a synonym for a lady's front bottom. I stopped being embarrassed by that a long time ago, but I do feel sorry for people who are given punny names. There's a business correspondent on BBC News 24 called Julia Caesar.
