Misty - English: Foggy (thats what my uncles called me...)
On a site with name meanings I found this though and laughed my ass off. So true. I have thought of changing my name for these very reasons.
"Don't do it!!! Think about if your child will ever have a professional job. With a name like Misty, it is hard to be taken seriously. I'm a doctor and go by my middle name now. Watch TV for a bit and notice how many strippers or hookers on TV are named Misty. Do you want your daughter to be thought of that way? Don't subject your daugher to be called: Misty Twisty, Misty Harbout, Miss T (as in Mr. T) and the desert at Dairy Queen Other questions your daughter will have to field. Were you named after a horse, dog, or cat? Is it a nickname for something? Were your parents Hippies? Isn't your name "Missy"? Don't you know your own name? Don't do it."
Anja is a derivitive of my paternal grandmother's name, Hannah. That, according to google is a derivative of St. Anne, or it said, a reference to the BVM. I've seen the speculation that Mary was a possible INFP. Interesting.
But I don't think I could have been as acquiescent and Grandma Hannah was anything but!

(My name means light too - I love it and have thought a lot about it!)
Edit: Link noted in earlier pages... haha! Apparently TONS of names have this meaning. Doesn't matter - I still love it, and it is still something to live up to.
