: My name is Sui-ting Rya Ho-tin-noe, I'm 22 years old and live in Puerto Rico. My problem is that I've been trying to find out things about my last name. Actually my last name, Ho-tin-noe was my grandfathers name, who was from Hong Kong. I am really ancious to know if somebody could help me finding out where does my name come from; what does it mean; who are my ancestors.
: I have a spanish translation of my name, because I'm Puertorrican, but I would like to know what it really means; WHO am I, etc.
: If by any chance sombody also knows what Joshia means, I'd like to know too, cause she's my sister.
I'm not sure about your name. However, Joshia comes from the Hebrew origin of Josiah.
