Does the meaning of your name affect your personality or would the personality of the one you're named after affect your personality?
So say you're named Yusuf. It means '(God) shall add (another son)' According to an Arabic site.
The Prophet Yusuf was also a very chaste and pious person as those who know his life story will know. (If not, a brief summary: http://www.islam101.com/history/peop...ets/joseph.htm)
So in this case, does the meaning of the name affect the personality or does the person you're named after affect the personality?
Quran/Sunnah references would be much appreciated
