Cherokee has its own alphabet and its own naming rules, much like any other language. In Cherokee, syllables end in vowels so if your name ends in a consonant, like Megan , you become Megana. Seven is a very important number to the Cherokee spiritually. There were seven clans, seven levels to the Universe, and so on, which is why it was used in their naming. Cherokee society is matrilineal so the child takes its name from its mother. A prominent elderly woman would name the baby based on its appearance at birth or, resemblance to some object. The name given at birth was frequently a nickname that would be changed later according to deeds and life experience. A name was considered part of the personality and it was believed that injury would occur if the name was misused.

If I knew any better going into this relationship I would have stopped. You should certainly still date even if you are not looking for a marriage partner. But I'm still going to show up, even if it means I lose an hour or two of sleep. I wish I know things better and would have taken a different path in life. I pray the holy Spirit will provide guidance to both of us, and that love conquers all.
Just as secular marriages have problems, so do temple marriages. I am married to an ongologist for 16years. Keep me posted, please. Oh well, I'll just pretend she's not mormon and see what happens. I don't think I can do it again.
