Unformatted text preview: I feel that I have proven this name by how much I have changed from high school to college. I have taken control of my life and I now do what I want, and I view that as powerful. I have never researched my last name, dean, that much. Mainly because I have accepted that fact this it is probably not my actual family name, because it is pretty certain that my father’s side of the family, which is half Native American and German, was just given the name when they integrated into the American society. When I researched the name, I found two meanings, the old English meaning is valley, and the Latin meaning is “leader of ten.” 2 So in essence, they have no connection to me or my life. 1 http://www.behindthename.com/name/corbin 2 http://www.behindthename.com/name/dean...
