- Meanings and history of the name Autumn
For my husband and I, the meaning is more than just "born in the fall." Here's why: http://megandewitt.blogspot.com/2015/03/whats-in-name-part-2-our-autumn.html
The term of Autumn is more innate and tied to the basic nature of man than most any other name I can think of. Autumn is a season, but it is also much more. When I explained my meaning behind the name Autumn, Megan, who originally liked the name, fell in love with it even more.
During human history, man has been tied to the seasons. In Winter, the masses would huddle together, struggling to survive in the cold harsh conditions, relying mostly on their stores of food. In Spring, life begins to renew and you work to plant your crop for the future. In Summer, you tend to your crop and perhaps towards the end of summer, you can start the harvest. And, in Autumn, as the heat subsides, yet Winter has not arrived, the harvest continues and comes to an end. Autumn is the time you have worked all year for; a time when you sit back and enjoy the fruits of your labor. Autumn is a time of plenty. The seed that was sown months ago, and tended to for the majority of the year has come to reward the owner many times over. This is my Autumn.
My Autumn is my reward. My reward for the years I worked, the years I went to school, the years I looked for my Mrs. Swanek, and the for all the years and all the efforts that were given by my parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, etc. to me and to the future generations. Everyone who has gone before me in my family worked hard for her, my wife and I struggled to meet her, and there was a time in the Winter when my wife and I were unsure that we would ever see our Autumn. My wife and I continued to work hard through the winter, tended to the crop in the Spring, and in a few months, our Autumn will arrive.
