In 2014 I featured a series of blog posts introducing you to 2,014 names. For the most part they were names that were brand new to me as well. Some names may be more familiar but I found the meaning or origin or some other aspect of the name made it worthy of inclusion here. You may love some of the names, you may hate some, but hopefully you enjoy learning about all of them.

I had this fabulous post that explored the seven possible layers of meaning of the Lighthouse that Jack and Hurley go to in this new season of Lost. But then blogger went and ate it and I hadn't saved it, I guess.

So instead, I will just post what I found out about the name Sayyid. It is arabic and means "lord". It was an honorary title given to the descendants of Hussein, the grandson of the Prophet. Jarrah means "vessel".
