The meaning of your name -- Rhonda --

CHICAGO, IL — What is the significance of your name? Most everyone would like to know that his or her existence has meaning, that there is a purpose for his or her “being.” What better place to begin than to understand the origin of your own name? Some have it easier than others do: this is a fact. But can that be explained in terms of the rhyme, or reason, by which a person was given his or her name.

To make this simple, I will begin with the origin of my own name — Rhonda — followed up by noting whether there seems to be any parallel between me being named Rhonda and the course along which my life has unfolded.

So take a walk with me as I explore this phenomenon of “what is in a name?” Taken from http://wiki.name.com/en/Rhonda, the name Rhonda has several different origins. Rhonda is most likely of Welsh origin, from rhon meaning “spear” and da meaning “good.” The meaning of Rhonda is therefore “good spear” or “good lance.” “Rhonda” is a girl’s name pronounced RON-dah. Since the name only became popular in the 20th century, it also possibly derives from the name of the River Rhondda, meaning “noisy,” in Wales: Taken from http://www.thinkbabynames.com/meaning/0/Rhonda. In the United States, the name Rhonda first appeared on the list of top 1000 most popular names for baby girls in the year 1935: Taken from http://wiki.name.com/en/Rhonda.

The “Rhonda” that I turned out to be is, yes, wonderful, and many of the things that the name said that I would be. “Rhonda” is often descripted as having a very sensitive nature, although she does not always let her emotions show on the outside. “Rhonda” is said to be a lover of harmony and symmetry, and she is a real aesthete. She possesses certain inner strength that makes her efficient when faced with life’s struggles. Not lacking in common sense, she is fond of her independence and very capable of taking responsibility, ambition, and self-confident. (taken from http://www.first-names-meanings.com/names/name-RHONDA.htm)

As a child, “Rhonda” is not necessarily very docile especially when her parents express an authoritarianism to which she is highly allergic: she is certainly a character. She has a profound sense of justice and is likely to rebel at the slightest undeserved attack, possibly becoming aggressive and out of control. However, by promoting her sense of responsibility and accepting her individuality, her parents soon discovers that she just wants to feel valued and is actually very eager to do the right thing. It is uncanny how parallel these descriptions are as it relates to my actual existence considering that much of this information has been taken word for word from http://breathlifein.tumblr.com/post/48562137924/stana-katic-alphabet-sta.... Thus, it should be noted that a “Rhonda” has a tendency to be conciliatory, sensitive, disciplined, and at times even a bit of a perfectionist (from http://www.first-names-meanings.com/names/name-IDONEA.html).

This whole “what is in a name” project truly makes one wonder about “predetermined destiny.” If this “Rhonda” is ever to be able to stake a claim to fame, she will then be able to say that “I” was predestined per the name.

So come on now ~ do your research to find out what your name says about the you that you have become.

PUNCH 76 -- Leaders for the Water Reclamation Department seeks your vote

CHICAGO – Beauty, brawn, or brains is not something one would think about when it comes time to vote. And who am I to suggest that to be elected one should consider beauty over brawn or brawn's over brains for that matter. The beauty of it all is that the water reclamation department incumbent, Cynthia Santos, has decided that the voters should have the luxury of placing all in three into office; beauty, brawn, and brains.

During a non-presidential election voters are lax about turning out to vote. So there is a dynamic three who are not career politicians who have decided what a better time than now to branch out to educate, motivate, and encourage today’s youth to claim their stake in the political process, and allow their voices to be heard. Water reclamation department incumbent, Cynthia Santos, is up for re-election, and she has attracted the talent of two very capable, and highly educated young men to balance out her efforts; Adam Miguest, and Tom Courtney.

The intensity of this film is just as stimulating as “Requiem for a Dream” & “Precious” yet its cultured like the movie “Fire Proof.” This compulsive tale of a family’s secret reminds us that life for each of us has its own individual journey.
