Meaning of English names

Practically every-body’s name from where I come from (the general region) as well as here in the Middle East, has a meaning. For example Rohail means dignified, Abdullah means servant of Allah, etc.

It suddenly occurred to me that I had no clue as to what is the meaning of English names. For example; what do William or Thomas mean? Turns out they do mean something (determined guardian and dependable, respectively). Click here to find out the meaning of more English names.

    Thanks for the info. Somehow I was under the misconception that English names should be self-explanatory – hence my dilema.
