What's in a name?

So I'm approaching the 4 month mark of waiting for the call to introduce me to my daughter. Every day I feel closer to her.  I can only explain the feeling like a very long time ago we made a pledge to be together and it will come true soon.  As I think of her and who she'll be I am tickled with possibility.   Maybe she'll love stars, worms, drums, ribbon, pineapple, science, hamsters, etc...

In an earlier post, I explained why I picked the name Liv and it's meaning - a vow with God and all the other reasons I liked it. There's no doubt that names are ultra personal and people choose based on family, culture, meaning, sound, etc... Well, for fun, a friend pointed out this website that defines some one's personality based on the numerology of their name.  Here's what I got when I typed in Liv at

Thought, analysis, introspection, and seclusiveness are all characteristics of the expression number 7. The hallmark of the number 7 is a good mind, and especially good at searching out and finding the truth. You are so very capable of analyzing, judging and discriminating, that very little ever escapes your observation and deep understanding. You are the type of person that can really get involved in a search for wisdom or hidden truths, often becoming an authority on whatever it is your are focusing on. This can easily be of a technical or scientific nature, or it may be religious or occult, it matters very little, you pursue knowledge with the same sort of vigor. You can make a very fine teacher, or because of a natural inclination toward the spiritual, you may become deeply emerged in religious affairs or even psychic explorations. You tend to operate on a rather different wavelength, and many of your friends may not really know you very well. The positive aspects of the 7 expression are that you can be a true perfectionist in a very positive sense of the word. You are very logical, and usually employ a quite rational approach to most things you do. You can be so rational at times that you almost seem to lack emotion, and when you are faced with an emotional situation, you may have a bit of a problem coping with it. You have excellent capabilities to study and learn really deep and difficult subjects, and to search for hidden fundamentals. At full maturity you are likely to be a very peaceful and poised individual.

Here's what I get for Amy:
An Expression of 3 produces a quest for destiny with words along a variety of lines that may include writing, speaking, singing, acting or teaching; our entertainers, writers, litigators, teachers, salesmen, and composers. You also have the destiny to sell yourself or sell just about any product that comes along. You are imaginative in your presentation, and you may have creative talents in the arts, although these are more likely to be latent. You are an optimistic person that seems ever enthusiastic about life and living. You are friendly, loving and social, and people like you because you are charming and such a good conversationalist. Your ability to communicate may often inspire others. It is your role in life to inspire and motivate; to raise the spirits of those around you.

Hmmmmmmmmmm, we shall see...
