I noticed a lot of times in the TaNaKh, how children were given specific names for a specific reason.
Take Binyamin for example, his original name at birth was "Benoni" (son of my sorrow) but his father changed it to "son of my right hand".
In fact, each of the Shevatim had their names given for specific reasons.
My question is this: Do children's names (and their meanings) INFLUENCE their character ? Or does the way the child lives REVEAL their name? Rather than getting the name of an aunt or uncle for example.
