Actually the accent is the other way round (è). I wasn't named after DeVante Swing, no, I wasn't named after anything. But let us see who can guess what my name means. smile

No?

I was suggesting that you research the name, not simply make an absurd assumption.

1.An assumption is when you guess or accuse or assume that something will happen or happening
2.He's not being techniqual. He's trying to give you the most simple way.

I remember seeing you post about this a while ago on the forums, so I'll just try and rely on my memory for this one...

A kind of god...?

Heh, that's all that comes to mind, i think several forum members are named after gods of some kind.

I swear that used to be the other way round. Like, it used to be Devanté, not Devantè. At least, that's what I have been typing all along ... and mostly everyone else too.

So, did you change it ... or am I going crazy? big_smile

Re: forum for artists?

It means two things...

The Spanish origin is that it means 'Fighter Of Wrong'.
Another (I think Hindu if I remember from a long time ago) origin means 'God'.

EDIT: Yeah, I asked MathsIsFun (via PM) to change it. smile

Re: forum for artists?

Okay ... so I'm not seeing things! Phew!

So, does the accent make a difference in pronunciation or meaning or anything else? Any reason for the change? big_smile

Re: forum for artists?

Well, normally, I think it'd be pronounced as 'Devarnt' because of the è. I doubt it changes anything in meaning, I've never heard of a change of accent and/or pronounciation do that. One of the reasons for the change is realising how many times my name has appeared with the wrong accent. I said it was my real name, so it should be the real thing. smile

Re: forum for artists?

Devarnt, hey?

Okay. Well I think mentally I've been saying it, 'Dev-arnt-ay'. I had no idea how to say the accent so I kind of made it up myself.
