This info about your name is fascinating, and gives the lie to the old
Gertrude Stein adage, ‘ a rose is a rose is a rose, etc’.
Stein was wrong, as you prove, in trying to reduce the mystery of personal identity
to a childish name game without meaning.

See you soon

It’s also the flip side of “be careful what you ask for,” which is why we call them “given” names. Hey-ho.
