Name-calling

This is interesting. Nomen est omen or so they say. Cute nomen est cute omen or so I say. Actually, I just made that up.

Made-up names are constructing our own reality. We name things the way we want them to be. People give themselves cute pet names because they want to appear cute and…erm…pet-like. Names don`t change anything but our minds.

The point of a nickname is that there`s always an explanation behind it and there`s always the majority of the people who does not get a nickname. Quick, why is everybody calling me Cookie? Anyone? Well, you might have a theory, but even I don`t know the real reason for it.

They say names are for the tombstone. They don`t matter, because they are actually a consequence of our thoughts. Names are thoughts in motion. Nothing more and nothing less…
