A person’s name can tell you a lot about them.
We live in a time when family names are not held in high regard. We’re not saying that people are ashamed of their names. They just don’t know much about them. The main reason we don’t take more pride in our family names is that we don’t know our family heritage, and we don’t know the meaning of our names.
It doesn’t take much to dig up some information on your family name, and you may be surprised at what you find. You may also connect with some relatives you never knew you had.
When it comes to both the heritage and the meaning of your name, you can either ignore it or live up to it. And if there isn’t much to live up to, then determine to bring honor to your family name.
A good name is more desirable than riches. Proverbs 22:1
