#TheSW30 Day 10: Google the meaning of your name and talk about how it fits or doesn’t fit you


Hi! I am on day 10 already of the single woman’s 30 day blogging challenge: Google the meaning of your name and talk about how it fits or doesn’t fit you.

My name is Ma. Jaenara Manaog Bitao, and my nickname is Jaea.

As per google my name Ma. or Maria from baby name wizard is a Latin form of Mary, which is derived from the Hebrew Miryām, a name of debated meaning. Many believe it to mean “sea of bitterness” or “sea of sorrow.” However, some sources cite the alternative definitions of “rebellion,” “wished-for child,” and “mistress or lady of the sea.” The name is borne in the Bible by the mother of Jesus, the son of God.

I guess it is quite true that I am a lady of the sea. I love the sea. Haha!

However, I could not disagree that I do wish to become a mom someday. I am not getting any younger now and I hope that in God’s time, it will be provided, when I am ready and when the right man for me finds me. I am quite bitter too, but I surrender all my heartaches to God.

Let’s do an etymological cut of my name to Jae – nara.

I am so glad after I saw this at eBabyNames.com:

Jae means victory, healer, supplanter, Jay bird and respect.

Then the nara name:

My mom told me that she got my name Nara inspired from the Narra Tree (Pterocarpus indicus), the Philippines’ national tree, which symbolizes strength. She said that she wanted me to be strong in handling challenges in life.

Next is my nick name, Jaea.

Jaea means victory in Hindu.

Jea (another version of Jaea) means “Hope” from Guyana, African origin and from Hebrew origin as well which means “Beautiful“.

I thank God because He is my creator. He created me beautifully. 😍 I am fearfully and wonderfully made.

I am inspired by what I learned about the meaning of my names. Yes. I really do want to become successful someday. I claim victory, success and triumph in my endeavors. I hope that I would be able to do them for my self improvement and progress and not just for myself and family alone, but to glorify God.
