As a Jordan, you are a born executive—with great capabilities in all intellectual pursuits and a quick and clever mind. Those qualities combined with your graceful nature bode well for your success in business and financial matters. You never lose your cool when dealing with people, and the word “poised” describes you to a T. As someone who is able to control their emotions so successfully, you are naturally private when it comes to your feelings, and you may hear others say that they have a hard time getting to know you. This is a challenge for you, and you would benefit from opening up a bit so that people would feel that they understand you better. (This would be especially beneficial in the workplace, but it also is important in your personal relationships as it will bring the people you value even closer to you.)
Your poised and reserved nature do serve you well when leading a team, and you always seem able to see the big picture instead of getting bogged down in unnecessary details. That’s not to say that you ignore the details. Somehow you seem to be able the forest and the trees all at once, which makes you an asset to any team you work with.
The name Jordan traces directly to the name of the river that runs between Jordan and Israel. The name comes from the Hebrew Yarden or Yarad, meaning to “descend” or “flow down.” The Jordan River was of particular importance in the New Testament as the site of Jesus’ baptism at the hands of John the Baptist.
Jordan is used for both boys and girls in the United States, though it’s a bit more common for boys. As a girls’ name, it came into popular usage in the US in 1978 and quickly grew in popularity into the Top 100. Jordyn and Jordynn are popular variations in the United States for girls.
Of course the most famous person with the name Jordan is actually someone with the last name Jordan, one of the NBA’s biggest stars of all time: Michael Jordan.
