The Hobbit: Chap VIII

“I will give you a name,” he said to it,”and I shall call you Sting.”

There is value in knowing your name. To name something is to give it an audible symbol, a unique set of utterances that mean what something IS. Names can be ill-given or well-given, they can carry truth, or be a deception. But when you learn your True Name, you are much closer to knowing who you really are. By such symbols do we begin to learn Truth.

What is YOUR name?
