If your name is Destiny, you are a soul who is always on the move (or at least you always want to be)! You have a certain restless energy, and you are always looking forward to the next new experience and opportunity to meet and engage new people. Along the same lines, you are a doer, always spurred to action. But you tend to resent any obligations that cause you to have to engage in monotonous, routine, and day-to-day tasks. You much prefer to shake things up and keep things changing and challenging.
Some of your real talents lie in the ability to see new solutions to old problems, and you are able to find new, innovative, and more efficient ways of doing things that have been done the same way forever. You have supreme self-confidence, giving you the ability to take risks (which comes in handy when you are out adventure-seeking). This risk-taking, confident nature also leads you to a natural aptitude in sales or advertising.
You are flexible and ready to go with the flow, but you can easily become frustrated when people or obstacles stand in the way of what you seek to do next . . . so take it easy and look for your patience. This will keep both you and your relationships healthy and raring to go!
Destiny is a name that comes directly from the English word with the meaning “fate, preordained future, or purpose of life.” The word comes from the Latin word “destinata” meaning “to determine” by way of the Old French word “destinee.”
The name Destiny came into popular usage in the United States in 1975 and is distinctly American. Destiny was destined to hit the Top 100 in 1994 and reach its peak popularity of #22 in 2001. This coincided with the popularity of the girl band “Destiny’s Child”, fronted by Beyonce Knowles, in 1997 through 2006.
The most famous Destiny is someone we don’t actually know by the name of Destiny. That’s Miley Cyrus, who was born Destiny Hope Cyrus! Miley Cyrus is the daughter of country singer Billy Ray Cyrus of “Achy Breaky Heart” fame. Miley has actually risen to fame beyond that of her father’s, best known for her role as Miley Stewart on the Disney Channel’s Hannah Montana. She toured successfully as both personas in her Best of Both Worlds Tour, and has since launched a successful recording career.
