What is meant by the word spirit in "The holy spirit"? Is it something of it's own, or is spirit used in the same way as somewhere in the bible?

You've started what? 3 different threads on the Holy Spirit? The Holy Spirit is the 3rd person of the Trinity. He is a person. He is not simply God's spirit. He is an actual person.

Once again...here is a link to my post listing the verses supporting this.

So it is correct that he is God's spirit, and an own person Where in the bible does it say that The holy spirit is God's spirit?

The title 'Holy Spirit' is just one of many titles which belong to the third Person of the Trinity. All three Persons of the Trinity are Holy and all three are Spirit. While in His humanity Jesus has a body, as God He is Spirit.

The Holy Spirit is distinct from the Father as shown by the fact that the Father knows the mind of the Spirit.
Romans 8:26 In the same way the Spirit also helps our weakness; for we do not know how to pray as we should, but the Spirit Himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words; 27] and He (The Father) who searches the hearts knows what the mind of the Spirit is, because He intercedes for the saints according to the will of God.
The Holy Spirit has His own mind which the Father knows.

Nope, that is a man made teaching enforced by the decree of a Roman Emperor and not found ever TAUGHT in Scripture and not believed in the 1st century at all.

Actually I have only known the names of the Holy Spirit , as Spirit of God or God`s Spirit , Jesus Spirit , Holy Spirit and Holy Ghost , when asking Holy Spirit His Heavenly name the only revelation was Holy Spirit or one of these and no other name , Not Jehovah , Not Lord ...... So Holy Spirit is here for the promise of the Father from the day of Pentecost , and will be here until sin grows in the earth were Holy Spirit will be blaspheme in being in the earth and will be called home to heaven , but will be called back after Jesus second coming for God grace to be delivered to the world
