What is in a NAME?
Let's begin with the Bible, the source of the Law of the Land throughout the Western World, and let's begin with the most important name of all, the name of God.
God doesn't have a name. People have made up various excuses for this fact, but the scripture also quite clearly tells us the same. "I Am That I Am" is a four-letter description. There are 72 other three-letter descriptions known as "names of God" that each describe another defining characteristic of God, so that taken on the whole, we know far more about the nature and character of God than we could ever know from a name----but the fact remains that God does not have "a" name.
Neither do God's children. This is on purpose. In Revelation we are told that we will be given names, but as such, we have no names now --- at least no names known to mortal man.
What??? We have no names? That's right, we have no names. As children of God we are spirits inhabiting flesh, and like our Father, we have no names, only descriptions.
This is why for many hundreds of years in all the venues of Law of the Land, people are described: "Anne of Green Gables", "Henry of Warwick", "Elizabeth of Ardennes", "George by the Battlements", "Eleanora of Bailford, Bickford, and Main" ---- or, "Anna Maria Wilhelmina Hanna Sophia Riezinger of (von) Reitzenstein of (von) Lettow before (Vor) Beck."
So if we have no names, what are these things we use day to day to call each other to breakfast?
