every korean.. well i guess not every.. but most korean names have meanings behind them.. korean names are almost always two syllables. chinese words put together to mean one thing. it’s kinda like how american indians name their kids sitting bull.. or.. raging hormone.. or whatever.. i have a very unique korean name.. i think i’ve talked about it before.. maybe even on this website.. but.. i’ve never written anything about it.. on my little “about tim tuesdays”.. so.. here goes…

my korean name.. is lynn-won. it’s a very difficult name for korean’s to say.. myung lynn won.. it’s.. 3 hard sounding words after each other.. the first syllable, lynn.. (pronouced leen) is very hard word to say. the sound of R or.. L is usually never in front of a syllable. when i say my korean name to older koreans.. they always think.. it’s .. een-won. just because they have a hard time pronouncing it..

the second syllable.. won.. i’ve been told by korean fobs that the majority of people that have won in their names are korean orphans.

lynn.. means.. fire. and won means.. the foundation or.. firmament.. together.. it’s.. fire foundation.. the person where fire comes from… or… the spark.. so.. my name.. it means.. i’m the person that starts events. or.. i’m the source of beginnings. i’m the one that brings along change… i don’t know if i’ve ever lived up to my name. i’ve always thought of myself to be different.

rather than following the leader or leading people with me, i’d prefer to go on my own and do my own thing.. starting little fires wherever i go.. i don’t know…
