What does my first and last name mean?

First Name: Thomas

 

New Testament name, borne by one of Christ’s twelve apostles, referred to as “Thomas, called Didymus” (John 11: 16; 20: 24). Didymos is the Greek word for “twin”, and the name is the Greek form of an Aramaic byname meaning “twin”. The given name has always been popular throughout Christendom, perhaps because St Thomas’s doubts and reassurance have made him seem a very human character. Derivatives: Irish Gaelic: Tomás. Scottish Gaelic: Tòmas; Tàmhas (a dialectal variant, from which comes the surname Mac Thàmhais, Anglicized as MacTavish). Welsh: Tomos. Italian: Tommaso. Polish: Tomasz. Czech: Tomáš. Russian: Foma. Finnish: Tuomo.Short forms: English: Tom. Scottish: Tam. Italian: Maso. Dutch: Maas.Pet forms: English: Tommy. Scottish Gaelic: Tòmachan, Tòmag.Feminine forms: English: Thomasina, Thomasine, Tamsin

 

Last Name: 朱(Zhu)

 

Chinese 朱: from the name of the state of Zhu in present-day Shandong province. Wu Wang, the first king (1122–1116 bc) of the Zhou dynasty, granted to Cao Xie, a descendant of the emperor Zhuan Xu of the 26th century bc, lordship of the state of Zhu (see also Cao). Later, this state was conquered by the state of Chu, after which many descendants of the Zhu aristocracy took a modified form of the character Zhu for their surname; the pronunciation is the same. The name has become very common in southern China.

    這麽巧?但不知您哪兩位朋友是小可同窗?嚴重想知道。他們應該告訴你我非常喜歡珠寶,而且曾一度兩手戴一金二銀三個戒指吧。其中一枚還是老鳳祥標價最貴的銀指環呢。呵呵。我什麽缺點都有,就是有一個好:俗氣。風采墨寶哪裏敢當?您別笑話我了,

    吳大筠是我本科兩載的roommate呢。是他把愚博客告知閣下的嗎?另一位法律系的確實不認識。當年是喜歡買點東西點綴自己,因爲人丑嘛。可是被老師同學一致罵作“流氓作派,有辱校風”,我就收斂了。現在金的除非重大宗教場合,一般不見天光。銀的只戴一枚。我家聖善特別反對我購置隋珠和璧。:(
