    I'll be honest, I wouldn't have the balls to name myself Virgil, so I'm glad my folks did. It's a pretty sweet name.

    Is there a reliable site with first and last name meanings/history?

    Behind the Name is pretty good. They also have a site for surnames.
    Wow. That's a blow to the ego.
    Entered my surname in and got "Name not found". I thought (and the phone book seems to agree) that my surname isn't especially rare.

    edit: Phew. Found it here.
    I exist. =D

    My last name doesn't appear in either database. But it isn't a blow to the ego for me, it just means my last name is very unique (in America)

    first name is patrick

    my middle name is entirely forgettable

    last name is a Sicilian variation on a very ancient European surname that is so old it has essentially no meaning

    I've never met anyone who had it who was not a member of my immediate family

    I was named after the lead singer in the Moody Blues. Now it's Justin Beiber jokes all day.
