This seems to imply that perhaps our name isn't who we are, so much as how we view ourselves. It's our perspective on the world, personified in our name.

Ashley is my name. It means "ash meadow". "Ash" as in trees, not burnt things.
I guess its a nice enough meaning. A field of trees, how pleasant. Kind of boring though if you ask me.
If I ever have a kid I'll name it P'yraglothsasamatanaophus Nl'arlyptosis Funt IV, which means nothing at all but is a heck of a lot less bland than Ashley.
The name George derives from the Greek “georgos” meaning “earth-worker” or “farmer,” which is a combination of “ge” meaning “earth” and “ergein” meaning “to work.” One Gaelic form of George is “Seoirse”. Additionally, Scottish Gaelic forms of George are “Seoras” and “Deorsa.” The Welsh form of George is “Sior.”
Saint George - patron saint of England, Portugal and Catalonia - was a legendary dragon slayer and is the patron saint of knights, armorers and archers. The name George was uncommon in England until the 18th century.
The name George belonged to Kings in England (six) and Greece (two) as well as Presidents of the United States (three).
