As for my first name, Yehuda, it's quite an interesting story. My mother and father were attending a Christian gathering when she had me in her womb, and while walking on the stairs my mum was met by a Protestant pastor. He asked my mum if I was to be her firstborn, to which my mum said yes. He replied that I was to become a boy and that she should name me Yehuda, to which she obliged :thumbsup:
I see the meaning of Yehuda is praise or thanks. I had not heard of this name before.
My middle name is Gerard. My mom had several miscarriages before me, and I was a difficult pregnancy as well. A friend suggested she pray to Saint Gerard Majella, patron of expectant mothers. I was given the name in gratitude for his intercession.
