On the Importance of a Name

    Some one say:name is a very important thing to a person.Because for many of us,we have only one name in our life.Name contains too much information of its owner,such as his family name,or what it is made from,or what it is used for,and so on.Name is so useful that it can’t be replace by any other thing.

    But some one else do not think so.They hold the opinion that name is worth nothing.As they say:name is only a code,and we can call anything with the same name if we want.And as it is known to us,in china,there are so many people with the same name,so we need not take our name too serious.

    In my opinion, I think name is very important in our daily life. Name is widely used in our life, for example, teacher will have great difficult to ask one of his students to answer the question. And many other problems will take place if we don’t have names. And

    we can’t ask shop assistants to get what we want properly. So I hold the opinion that we can’t live in our world without name.

    In short, name is very important!

    It is often debated that whether a name is important or not. Some persons consider their name were crucial for the following reasons. First of all, a good name represents a good image. For example, if your name is “Lin xiaohuang”, you can’t tolerate friends calling you

    “xiao huang” as a dog’s name usually. If you are a well-known

    company’s CEO at 50, you won’t be ridiculed by your subordinates for your name. Second, a good name is representative of expectations from your parents. For instance, your parents may hope you have a very happy life in the future if they named you “lele”.

    On the other hand, other people don’t mind what they are named. They feel that their names are just a simple code like a, b or c and lack of extra significance. In history, some people had made great contribution to human society even if they have common names.

    In my point of view, a name is not important. Even if we have dissatisfied names, we can change our names after growing up. In the foreign-invested companies, colleagues call each other English names. Hence, you can choose a perfect name for yourself.

    A name is the representation of a person or an entity. It plays an important role in social recognition, just as the old saying goes: a thing is the entity of a name. However people have diverse opinions on the importance of a name. Some people say that name is important, while others maintain the other way round. But I think name is of great importance because it is the symbol distinguishes one thing or person from the others.

    On the Importance of a Name

    Some say that name is of great importance for a person, an animal or an object. Because that they were born with name and the name will keep accompanied with them all their life. In most cases, people memorize someone with the name at first, and then their appearance, their character. For better or worse, qualities may be suggested by name and conveyed to people before they even meet the owner. They believe what was said in the Bible, “As his name is, so is he.

    But therere always some people maintain the other way round. They consider that name is beside the point and a name is just a label, which can’t represent the

    owners essential quality. In history, some people had made great contribution to human society even if they have common names.

    In my point of view, name is special because it is the symbol distinguishes one thing or person from the others. But it is not that significant and cant decide the

    owners character, life and fate.
