What's in a name?

Relaxing with mindless fun & games..so what's in your name? I'd love to hear back the results

TTQ is short for Temper Tantrum Queen. No, I did not make it up for myself a past boyfriend who would actually put me on five minute time outs....Started it and shortened it to TTQ. It stuck. I once had a limo driver sent to the airport to pick me up and take me to a club in South Beach who was told to put TTQ on the sign he was holding up for arriving travelers.

Temper
Noun
1. A sudden outburst of anger; "his temper sparked like damp firewood".
2. A characteristic (habitual or relatively temporary) state of feeling; "whether he praised or cursed me depended on his temper at the time"; "he was in a bad humor".
3. A disposition to exhibit uncontrolled anger; "his temper was well known to all his employees".
4. The elasticity and hardness of a metal object; its ability to absorb considerable energy before cracking.

Tantrum-
Noun
1. A display of bad temper; "he had a fit"; "she threw a tantrum"; "he made a scene".

Queen
Middle English quene, from Old English woman, wife, queen, akin to Gothic qens wife, Greek gynE woman, Sanskrit jani
1 the wife or widow of a king b : the wife or widow of a tribal chief
2 a female monarch (b) a female chieftain
3 a woman eminent in rank, power, or attractions b. a goddess or a thing personified as female and having supremacy in a specified realm (c) an attractive girl or woman; especially a beauty contest winner

My real name is quite the opposite. Which I guess is akin to an alter ego. I'm not going to put the actual names in, just the meanings. You know anonymity and all.

First Name
This name could be derived from several sources. It could be from Spanish meaning "beautiful"; or it could be a short form of Germanic names ending with the elements meaning "soft, tender".

Middle Name
From a surname derived from Old English "meadow".

Last Name
The name was probably taken from the sign at an inn, the young kind; Welsh, to skip. The primitive Celtic or Gaelic signified armor, as a dart, a blade, or sword; hence, to disable, injure, maim.

So full name meaning might be: to skip through a beautiful meadow, or I like to lure beautiful, soft and tender individuals to a meadow and maim them. Just saying..

Discover the hidden meaning of your name, this was cool..

I typed in my full maiden name and this was the result:

Sensitive, emotional and caring you seek peace and harmony and desire to work for the benefit of others and society. Your talents and abilities may draw you towards teaching or service occupations where you would be a natural success. Although quite reserved your courage and ideals mean that you are single-minded and industrious in pursuit of your goals. Your affectionate and giving nature means that you are loved by all.

I entered my full maiden hyphen new last name and it said:

You are an extremely gifted individual with the ability to be outstanding in your chosen area. Independent, intelligent and wise you tend to rely on your own efforts rather than team support. You have a disciplined approach to life using your logic, organizational ability and sound judgment to achieve results. You do not seek the limelight and remain modest about your considerable successes. You are admired for your integrity and honesty.

That's cute, I'll have to check out my actual name and post the results when I've got a few more minutes.

My screen name Katie-q came from a nickname I had in high school, my first name is actually Katie, and in one of our classes we had to wear nametags, my friend Steph thought it would be funny to add a -q to the end of my tag, (oh the things that you think are funny in the 9th grade!) just to see what people would say, and it stuck.
