Post for October 17

Hello All,

For this post, research and explain the history (both personal and etymological) behind your name.

For example, "Matthew" comes from the Hebrew  Mattathyah meaning "gift of Jehovah," and Matthew was one of the 12 apostles in the Bible and wrote the first book of the New Testament.

I wasn't named after any relative, but apparently, my father was inspired by the character of Marshal Matt Dillon from the television western Gunsmoke.

Those are the "celestial models" behind my first name.
