When I was a teenager, there was a book called Your Destiny is in Your Name. It concerned numerology, if I remember correctly. I didn't put much stock in my destiny being in my name.
But when I discovered the deep Goddess connections of my name, it did feel to me like I had somehow been marked as Hers right from the beginning. My mother unintentionally expressed my life's path simply by choosing that starlet's name for me. Funny, isn't it? Carl Jung would say, No, it is synchronicity. There are no meaningless coincidences.
So "Debra" remains the central component of my spiritual name. But where did the rest of it come from?
