    our first name of Lizaan has given you a friendly, likeable nature, and you could excel in artistic, dramatic, and musical expression.

    With this name, you desire the finer things in life, but you do not always have the resolve and vitality to put forth the effort necessary to fulfill your desires.

    Your emotional feelings are easily aroused and you will always be involved in other people’s problems as a result of your overly sympathetic nature.

    The name I was given at birth was Raigahn (pronounced Ray-gaan). As far as I can remember, it meant rose….(I think I was more the thorn in my mom’s life tho :/). Everyone then called me Ray for short. I changed religions and decided to legally change my name. I opted for Raey instead as it was unusual and also not so masculine as Ray.

It’s nice to honour people that played a role in my life , not so nice when you have to fill out forms 🙂

My names say that I designing my daily life with a little fantasy and I am particularly creative and intuitive. When I red this a few years ago, I agreed completely.. my mom said that she found the name in a restaurant menu, on a paper just laying there, and fell inlove with it. I want to have this ring because my mom’s best friend is not very welthy, and she has been over fantasizing about it for months!
