Names and Animal Totems
I was recently asked (ergo the "Random Questions" page) if there is an animal that corresponds to our given names. According to Pierre Le Rouzic, author of "The Secret Meaning of Names" , everything on earth is interconnected. Many ancient traditions maintain that every human being has his reflection in the mineral, plant and animal kingdoms. Even the Bible is full of this kind of symbolic reference, where a pure woman is a dove, a crafty man is a snake-in-the-grass, love is a rose etc.
For example: my name, Carol, has Fire as my element, Iron as my mineral and Elephant as my animal. My plant totem is a Weeping Willow, my name sign is sagittarius, and my color is Red. For more information on this subject you can purchase the book "The Secret Meaning of Names" by Pierre Le Rouzic, or for a brief synopses of this topic go to www.books.google.com, type the secret meaning of names in the search box and when the next screen comes up, click on The Secret Meaning of Names, Pierre Le Rouzic, limited preview.
