Author Topic:   ~NEGATIVE WORDS?~
posted August 27, 2006 12:04 PM           Edit/Delete Message   Reply w/Quote
Again the question of negative words has been raised.
What does it mean if there are more negative words than positive ones in a persons name? Does this mean they are evil or very bad in some way?

No! Such words, especially under 4 letters in length are very common in many names. It all depends on what other words appear to alter things. Also it can mean one hates lies or liars, and not be one themselves.
Linda Goodman's own birth name...Mary Alice Kemery has such things in it.

So do you believe that about her?
One can find good and bad things in anyone's name.
Is that why she changed her name? Doubtful, as she had I AM GOOD, AND I AM NO GOOD, in her new name.
I see no logical way that by having the word "YES" (which she did not have) how it would have made any difference.
For example:
IF she had the word "YES"..
It would still invite contradiction.
Pretty much the same outcome as she had using
her name "Linda Goodman"
"YES" does NOT cancel out either the positive nor the negative.
If anything it amplifies both! By confirming and contradicting both the positive and the negative.!)
I highly suspect Linda whether consciously or unconsciously...made that rule up
"because of her own name(s)."

So think carefully before assuming the word lie, or any other negative word is about the person. It could reflect them of course, or maybe only what they do not like.
Another example:
A person has MURDER or MURDERED in their name.
Does that mean they will murder or be murdered?
No! Perhaps they scream bloody murder or murder the language. Perhaps they love murder mysteries, or maybe they are a forensics detective or counsel families of murder victims.
Same for words such as RAPE or STEAL.
One could be a rape counselor and the other "gets things for a steal", a "bargain hunter". Or steals bases in baseball.
Too many words change meaning depending on context.
Assume nothing when it comes to words.
Please read this thread for explanation of negative words in names and Zebra rule controversy.
Example here based on "lie" etcetera.

You are welcome.
Lie does not always mean an untruth.

Lie can be very benign.
Some rethinking of what one thinks of the word
"lie" or "lies" is perhaps in order?
Like the word "present".
Definitions of present

1. [adj] - (grammar) a verb tense or other construction referring to events or states that exist at the moment

2. [adj] - spatial sense

3. [n] - the period of time that is happening now

4. [n] - something presented as a gift

5. [n] - a verb tense that expresses actions or states at the time of speaking

6. [v] - introduce

7. [v] - hand over formally

8. [v] - formally present a debutante, a representative of a country, etc.

9. [v] - bring forward and present to the mind

Quotes - Example use of the word present
1. his tie was a present from his wife

2. any continuous stretch of time including the moment of speech

3. that is enough for the present

4. he lives in the present with no thought of tomorrow

5. We presented the arguments to him

6. We cannot represent this knowledge to our formal reason

7. This poses an interesting question

8. being or existing in a specified place

9. the murderer is present in this room

10. present at the wedding

Ambiguity of meanings in many words abound! Do not assume only one meaning.
