What’s in a Name

Its funny how names have meaning and signifigance. Saying the same set of letters can elicit such different responses. When someone you don’t care for says your name you cringe to when someone you intimate with says it you melt. Same set of letters different tone can have such an effect on another human being.

We give permission to people to call us by one name because its a nickname. Maybe its our professional “Stage” or “Business” name.  It maybe a ceremonial or cultural name that is gifted to you. We deny others access to that name because of what that attachment to that name means to us.

There’s a lot that’s in a name.
