When Shakespeare said that what’s in a name, he, for sure, did not have to struggle through the ordeal of finding the exact perfect name for his baby. Names carry with them certain peculiar characteristics which we by virtue of obviousness attribute to the name holder. Just like religion, caste and ethnicity, your name becomes an accident of birth as it is not something that you choose. It is what your parents or relatives choose for you. Some people do go on to change their names as they grow older, but that percentage of people is not too high. You often get stuck with the name you were born with.
