What my Name Means.....

What Charnita Means

You are very open. You communicate well, and you connect with other people easily.
You are a naturally creative person. Ideas just flow from your mind.
A true chameleon, you are many things at different points in your life. You are very adaptable.
You are truly an original person. You have amazing ideas, and the power to carry them out.
Success comes rather easily for you... especially in business and academia.
Some people find you to be selfish and a bit overbearing. You're a strong person.
You are usually the best at everything ... you strive for perfection.
You are confident, authoritative, and aggressive.
You have the classic "Type A" personality.
You are wild, crazy, and a huge rebel. You're always up to something.
You have a ton of energy, and most people can't handle you. You're very intense.
You definitely are a handful, and you're likely to get in trouble. But your kind of trouble is a lot of fun.
You are very intuitive and wise. You understand the world better than most people.
You also have a very active imagination. You often get carried away with your thoughts.
You are prone to a little paranoia and jealousy. You sometimes go overboard in interpreting signals.
You tend to be pretty tightly wound. It's easy to get you excited... which can be a good or bad thing.
You have a lot of enthusiasm, but it fades rather quickly. You don't stick with any one thing for very long.
You have the drive to accomplish a lot in a short amount of time. Your biggest problem is making sure you finish the projects you start.
You are a seeker. You often find yourself restless - and you have a lot of questions about life.
You tend to travel often, to fairly random locations. You're most comfortable when you're far away from home.
You are quite passionate and easily tempted. Your impulses sometimes get you into trouble.

I did a little experimenting and this puts the same phrase to describe you with each letter you type. Mine is long because my name was long.....not very scientific, but.....

This is very accurate, although the rebel thing has faded with age.

Actually- my mother "made my name up."
Now with the wonder of the Internet, I can see that I am not the only person with the name, which is what I thought for the longest time.
In fact, there is a town in Pennsylvania with my name. I have been meaning to order a t-shirt.
Someone found my blog by googling my name with another last name- Craft. I will put it here so that next time they search- they will find my blog again!! ( It took them to the craft I did with my son's class for Valentine's!)
My mother had the same name - 1st and middle- of 5 other girls in her small high school graduating class. So she wanted me to have a name that no one else would have.
So far, I have never met another Charnita in person. Overall, I have liked having a unique name and gave my children unique ones as well. It is hard to name kids when you are in education for lots of years. Too many names conjure up unfavorable images.
Perhaps that is why my mother and I both chose unusual names for our kids.....

Well dig this ... my given name is "Anthanea" - ever heard that one before? Me neither ... they've called me by my "other name" that you know secretly of course since I was a tiny little girl ... nobody could pronouce my given name, but it sure is pretty. I guess I need to put in my nickname and see if it says the same thing ... ???
