My maiden surname means "son of David." The given name David comes from Hebrew DAVID, which means beloved. There are several different ways to spell my maiden surname. Though it's possible origins are: English, Welsh, Scottish, French, Portuguese, Czech, and Jewish; I think my ancestors come over from England.

I rather not say what my name is but its meaning isn't anything honorable. I've been told it means the place where horses drink. I've never even ridden a horse so can't relate. ;)
