Why do you have to have names?

A name is given as a means to identify you from others. In some societies it is a welcome and a promise you will be recognized and welcomed into the family/tribe. A name separates you from the others within your family/tribe.


A name also facilitates property ownership and the records that track property ownership. Names also allow governments to keep track of their citizens when the name of every newborn is entered into the vital statistics registries.
