The Traumatism of the first name
(first name meaning)

This site was carried out according to the book of François Bonifaix, with the Dune95 Editions

Why this site?

Naming a baby is not simply to give it a first name. What can be the psychological consequences - first name meaning - for the child and the adult it will become by choosing his/her first name ? We don't give a first name to a baby simply because the first name is "pretty" or "beautiful". Around this choice, there are innumerable other reasons, whether conscious or not. What will happen to the little "lexus" or "porsche" ? You, who have a first name, what is its history ? I hope that through these pages, illustrated of real examples, some will find answers, others will discover aspects of themselves they were unaware of.
