  1. Ursula K. LeGuin wrote a whole series centering around “true names” if I remember correctly. Names have power, and how we represent concepts in our heads makes a huge difference in how we think about those concepts. i.e. I 100% agree with you =)

  2. Is that the lady who wrote the book that was the TV show that my friends complained about?

  3. You right. For example:
    Oxana is name that makes it’s owner brilliant girl.
    Fatima – the same but it also gives strong charisma.
    Michael gives many vitality and strong mind.
