Everyone has a name
Some are simple
Plain and honest
Handed down 
As testimony
To a family’s history.

Names can be different
Something the parents thought of
That in languages there are letters
And symbols 
Change their spelling 
And confusion results 
Names become whimsical
Empty and without meaning.

Others believe that if they change their name 
They will change themselves
And there are some
Who only ask
That their names be spelled correctly 
And pronounced right down to its last delicious syllable.
