My Name

My name is Chow Ae-Ryn and it means, peace or Daughter of Éire, or a republic consisting of 26 of 32 counties comprising the island of Ireland; achieved independence from the United Kingdom in 1921 [syn: Ireland, Eire, Irish Free State]. In some websites Aeryn is a boy's name instead of a girl's name but most of the website says that its a girl. So I really wonder if my name is supposingly a girl's or boy's name. Anyway the following are some of the links to the website for my name,

Here is a short description of my name taken from wikipedia.com -
"Erin is a Hiberno-English derivative of Irish Gaelic Éirinn, the dative case - and also locative case - of Éire, the Irish word for "Ireland". Poets and also nineteenth-century Irish nationalists also used Erin in English as a romantic name for Ireland, as shown in the catchphrase (when speaking of Ireland's experiences with Britain), "Let Erin Remember". According to Irish mythology and folklore, the name was given to the land by the Milesians after the goddess Ériu. Erin Go Bragh (Éirinn Go Brách, in standard orthography), often heard during St. Patrick's Day, means "Ireland Forever". The etymological history of the word as it drifted throughout the Gaelic region gave rise to its use by the early Scots to both mean "Ireland", as well as "West", as Ireland lay to the geographic west of Scotland.
Erin is a popular modern name for both sexes, alternatively spelled as Eryn, Erynn, Eirinn, Aeryn, Eiryne. It also contributed to many surnames, as well, for example "Erin-Vienne" (West Man/Irish Man) gave rise to the surnames of Irving, Irvine, Ervin, Irwin, Eryvine, Ervyne, etc. There are over 200 known derivations of the Erin root."

I will try to find a way to put the chinese character of my name here.

This morning daddy gave mommy a shock when daddy accidently steps on mommy's glasses and pushes his hands against me (mommy's tummy). Mommy shouted really loud but daddy thought it was because he stepped on mommy's glasses. Mommy is really worried and I hope that I am alright since I have not move much until later in the day.
