When you really think about it, names are weird. It’s this thing that we have from the day that we’re born, that we have no say in whatsoever, which then follows us around for the rest of our lives. Even if we try to change it in the future, it’s still a huge decision that we will have to live with until death. Yet, all of this taken into consideration, it’s merely a signifier, something people can use to differentiate us from other people.
We put a lot of power into words, sometimes for a good reason and sometimes for bad. I understand why some people may look upon a great public speaker with a true sense of awe, but that often comes from the power of the person rather than the power of the words. This same emphasis should not be put on people’s names, or the negative things they have to say others. After all, a name is just a name!
However, there are those who believe that somebody’s name influences them more than we truly know. This is why, through a series of questions, we believe that we may be able to guess your name. If you don’t believe us, there’s only one way to find out…
Make sure you share this with your mates and see if you can freak them out as well! There’s nothing weirder than something on a computer screen being able to guess something about you. It feels like you’re being analyzed by a robot, or at the very least something not human.
