Does Your Name Determine Your Destiny? by nxchanger: 1:03pm On Nov 18, 2010
To some, the name you bear is important and they believe it has/would have an effect on your destiny, while to others, you can bear anything you like as long as you work with focus, you'll surely get there.
I may not have facts about some other parts of the world but I know in some African countries and here in our great country, Nigeria, most parents this days are mindful of the kind of name they give to their children putting into consideration the meaning of the name.
You must have come across people who changed their names and you start wondering why.

Now I ask this humble forum, do you believe ones name has got anything to do with his/her destiny?

It is unto you (each individual) according to your faith.

Yes it does have an effect either positively or negatively.

Take for instance a nickname given to someone by his friends. With time, consciously or unconsciously the person begins to behave in similarity to that name

Yes. I believe name speaks for a person. What you are named is what you stand for as a mark of identity.

Of course it determines for, example people named OLUSEGUN have a higher possibility that they will become governors/presidents e.g

Olusegun Obasanjo
Olusegun Mimiko
Olusegun Agagu e.t.c

In Nigeria it does! That is why a shoe-less man bearing "Goodluck" becomes the president by luck!

Elsewhere? It doesn't!

yea it does,to nigeria goodluck is a gud example,in the bible jebeez prayed bitterly and ask God to change his name,jacob name was change form jacob to isreal,because the name affects his destiny,even in heaven God recognise the significant of name,lucifer,was named for his post in heaven,still on the name,GOD KNOWS VERY MUCH THAT UR NAME DETERMINES WHO U ARE,THAT IS WHY HE GIVE JESUS THE NAME ABOVE EVERY OTHER NAME THAT AT HIS NAME EVERY KNEEL MUST BOW,so its not all abt wot u believe,heaven,earth,hell knows ur name determines ur destiny

Yes everytin we all said is true. Your name matters but their are some like blessing,favour,etc and are unsuccessful that's why God need's you to pray and tell him that you need your name to follow you. Some people change their names.e.g ogadinma,chimezie,patience,endurance because they know the outcome of those names and also focus and determination also helps alot .don't say "my name is following me,so let me wait on God". Remember, Heaven help those who helps themselves.
