Wow ~ You had a busy day! ;)

Beverley ~ One who dwells by the Beaver Meadow :confused: ~ I'm really trying to live up to it honest LOL.

The funny part is my Mum told me my name meant something REALLY pretty, but she couldn't remember what (this was years ago) so I looked it up ~ Guess either madness runs in our family or it just takes all sorts LOL

Hi Bev,
I tried doing a search on your name also and came up with woman from the beaver meadow or stream. Ok, now go with me on this one ok.

Beavers are know to be very creative and industrious right. After all, they build those huge beaver dams that are masters of engineering. So...you must, by default be creative and industrious!;) :D And that you are my sweet friend!!!!

Here is the meaning of your name that I found:

The laurel tree or sweet bay tree symbolic of honor and victory. Old name with many variants. [16]

Now I think this fits you to a tee! Your name is symbolic of honor and victory! That's you girl!!! :hug2:

Karen means pure.
Marie means bitterness.
I don't think they go together well, nor do they describe me at all. Do you want to swap names Bev?
