Whats is there in a name?

Isn't it amazing we all got names. Its an interesting thing to ponder upon. You would have few names on your mind already which are weird and amusing. But again, we all tend to forget. I bet you had one such conversations with your friend where you wanna recollect the person's name but can only remember their identity as you perceived them. For example:
You: Haan, maloom hum log usko dekh rahe the?
Friend: Usko(doubt), kisko?
You: Are woh chamshmewali, library mein hoti hain woh,
Friend: hmm, koun.
You: Aree abhi nahin yaad aa raha hain,  naam mein kya rakha hain?
Friend:  Achaa theek hain (yet more confused now)
  for that matter you feel tempted to say a rose is rose no matter what you name it, right?

Well, hold on to that thought.

Remember the name stickers we used to put on our school notebooks. As if that was not enough every stationery or for that sake any item of possession was labeled with our names.  I used to hate those nomenclature in biology classes. Oh, you did like those, theek hain bolo what does kindgdom does rinkuphyschodon belong? (google wale bhi dhund rahe honge yeh word, so don't attempt to search it) or tell me the 60 names of your classmates. I used to pity this guy in my high school named Ezzy.  Other students teased him saying take it easy each time he had doubt in class. Wonder what was Easy in him as i  always found him restless. Was it a easy go attempt of his parents, or  was it the  rastogi moments.Would you still say the same?  I guess that was the fear of the "dinku baby" and hence she decided to take charge of her identity.

Still not convinced?
 Theek hain, let me give you more visuals. 

Would you pose if it was named other than Yahoo! or
would you allow them in parties if they were not named William sisters 
 and for the tech savy people would you buy an if it was not named Iphone
 With all this bhejafry, there would still be people saying its about the perception. To them i would say, you get perceptiosn only when you see a thing, that thing has a name irrespective you know at that moment or not. Perception is just a way out when we cannot get the real thing, just like you fantasize your wannabe to be Him or Her.

So, take charge of your identity, don't let others tag you with idiotic names. 
Chalo, now raise your right hand, bend it and pat your self, now you are on the path of enlightenment, kudos to "Dishita". Ab pata chala, where you would have been without my esteem level observations and analogies?
