What's in a name?

In the news recently a mother wanted to name her son "Messiah".  She received an unsatisfactory response from the court. 

"The word Messiah is a title and it's a title that has only been earned by one person and that one person is Jesus Christ," the judge said. 
I applaud the judge's firm response whether or not the ruling stands. This made me think about what is in a name. Do you know what the meaning behind your name is?  Does it matter?  Do people treat you any different because of your name?

I looked up my name at names meanings

Meaning of "Jan"In Scottish, the name Jan means- God has been gracious. A diminutive of Janet, which is a feminine form of John.

I love that my name is a blessing to God! 

So what's the meaning of your name? 

This also reminds me of the names that God calls us; Beloved, child, chosen, bride, church, saints. He tells us who we are. No matter what your earthly name is He says that you are so much more.
