Oooh etymology time!
Let me preface this by saying that I think it's fantastic that the first two posters were named after characters on television shows. Love. It.
I got "Ryan" because my parents didn't want a name that had a shorter version (Jeffrey -> Jeff, William -> Will/Bill, etc.). It means "little king". I am neither.
Regarding surnames, mine is perhaps soggier than most. Sykes is super-British and topographical in nature. Basically it was assigned to individuals who lived in close proximity to a marsh, stream, or damp gully. Such imagery.
