I put in Tommy:

Name: Tommy
Gender: Male (duh!)
Origin: English
Meaning: a surname of Thomas

*puts in Thomas* That is my real name BTW...

Name: Thomas
Gender: Male (duh!)
Origin: Hebrew
Meaning: twin

I've heard that since it derives from the Hebrew language, the meaning "twin" could be referring to Christ himself...maning anyone named Thomas is the twin of Christ, meaning he inherited all the good qualities of Jesus...which somehow doesn't make since because Thomas thje apostle was the one that doubted that Jesus was even resurrected*goes off into a long theological lecture*

JESSICA f English
Pronounced: JES-i-ka
This name was first used in this form by Shakespeare in his play 'The Merchant of Venice', where it belongs to the daughter of Shylock. Shakespeare probably based it on the biblical name Iscah meaning "YAHWEH (search.cgi?terms=yahweh) beholds" in Hebrew, a minor character in Genesis. Jessica is sometimes used as a feminine form of JESSE (search.cgi?terms=jesse).

*clicks*

....---JESSE m English, Biblical
Pronounced: JES-ee
From the Hebrew name Yishay which possibly meant "gift". Jesse was the father of King David in the Old Testament. A famous bearer of this name was Jesse James, an American outlaw who held up banks and stagecoaches. He was eventually shot by a fellow gang member for a reward. Another famous bearer was the American athlete Jesse Owens.

^^;;; I'm a servant of a saint?

REBECCA f English, Italian, Biblical
Pronounced: re-BEK-a
From the Hebrew name Ribqah, possibly meaning "a snare" in Hebrew, or perhaps derived from an Aramaic name. This was the name of the wife of Isaac and the mother of Esau and Jacob in the Old Testament.
