What is in a Name? (Or, Online Distractions Led me to Drunken Babies and Name Analysis)

online_distractionsI’ve always been a very curious person, and like most people, when trying to work on the computer, “research” becomes an endless click-a-thon. One link leads to another, and before you know it, you’ve wasted your whole evening reading bizarre factoids.

Did you know that cats sleep 70% of their lives away?? Or, that in the 13th century Europeans baptized their children with beer??

drunkbaby Of course then came the inevitable baby belligerence and sooner rather than later little baby fights broke out over the Holy Beer Font. It was a whole big thing. It was only after the Great Confessions Gone Wild of 1289 AD that the Pope halted the practice of Beer Baby Baptisms forever.  (Okay, I may have embellished on that factoid, but it seems a likely scenario does it not??)

Now what was I writing about again? Ah, yes…distractions. One such evening of research led me to an interesting site called “Kabalarian Philosophy“. It was here that I found a detailed analysis of my first name.

I think it’s frighteningly accurate, and I will share said analysis here:

  • Your first name of Sharon has made you happiest when you are expressing in some creative, artistic way, and not conforming to strict routine.
  • In a large group of comparative strangers, you are quiet and rather shy, unable to express yourself, not really wanting to become involved in conversation.
  • On the other hand, among friends with whom you feel at ease, you are expressive, witty, and quite charming.
  • These contrasting natures make it difficult for people to understand you and can lead to friction in your personal life.
  • You are deep, philosophical, and refined, but your extremely sensitive nature causes you to become depressed and self-pitying over any real or imagined slight.
  • If you are not careful, people take advantage of your generous nature.
  • You find the beauties of nature, fine music, art, and literature–all the deeper things of life–inspiring.
  • The reserved, sensitive side of your nature brings aloneness and friction into your life, although you crave affection and understanding.
  • You must guard against emotional excesses, which could result in depletion of energy, creating a desire for quick-energy foods.
  • You could suffer through skin irritations, blood conditions, back trouble, and later, through arthritis.

You now know the inner-most-workings of my heart and soul.

Would I change my name if I could? I think so. In fact, from now on, I’ve decided that you can call me…Cordelia.
