I was reading a magazine article on different names... and I thought.. what if my mom and dad chose to name me Melissa or something other than what my name is..  what if my name was supposed to be different?  Is that what we'll call each other in heaven (by our given names)?

Questions that can't really be answered but I thought it was an interesting thought..

(for a minute at least.. lol)

Yes, you will have the same name in heaven.

The Bible talks about angels names. (Michael is one)

On other occasions it just mentions the word "Angel."

But in some cases the word "angel" means "messenger." Or "messenger from above."

But regardless, you should have a name.

Why tiptoe quietly through life just to arrive safely at death?

When I see you in heaven, may be I will see you and your name as the combination of:
_____the punctual
______the patient house keeper
______the modest intellectual
etc., so how we live defines our real name, just a thought.

Analyse the mind

You are what you choose yourself to be and you will find out who you are with what you do

I don't think it will matter. Remember, your name is not part of you. 'A rose by any other name would still smell as sweet'. Your soul/spirit goes to heaven, not your actual body, not yet anyway.

Angels are messengers, not actually people who die and go to heaven. Just what I was always taught.

Angels are frequently described as gods children. Their names were given to them by him. They were all created by him, with the exception of Lucifer, who was born.

Your name was given to you in this world. Perhaps you'll be called it, but it was not destined for you before you were born.

John translates as rock in hebrew.

Thats why Jesus said; "On this rock I build my church" and then John was made the first pope.

Actually, it was Peter that Jesus was talking to in that verse, hence why many consider Peter to be the first Pope. And Peter means "stone" or "small rock" in Aramaic.

John in Hebrew means "God has favored" or as JohhnyBoyC said, "God's gift" or similar.

Just thought I'd toss in my few thoughts.
