    Nice deduction. So I guess "Yarin" means "struck by the frying pan," then

    New web dictionary:
    Yarin - struck by the frying pan
    Elysia - struck by lightning

    ( :: ) - four dots planet. Planet for girls only. :: in Braille means G. G for girls.

    2 reasons.

    1) Compared to the majority of you all, I'm much older at 45.
    2) My day job is programming in Assembler on IBM mainframe computers, and they have a nickname of being called Dinosaurs.

    Dino!!!!

    I'm not toying with you guys. That's really what Elysia means. Look here!
    Yarin means to understand. Look it up.

    Look, here is my name as the correct meaning: http://www.babynameshq.com/name/Yarin;
    According to http://www.behindthename.com/name/yaron, Yarin doesn't exist, and "Yaron" means to sing.

    Ah, so yeah she was right: http://www.behindthename.com/name/elysia
    Sorry about that.
    http://babynamesworld.parentsconnect.com/ stinks.
