We assigned a name like that: the words, the names, nicknames and other forms of nomination, relieve anxiety.
You probably already occurred to someone and I did not hear about: What would happen if the parents of a newborn not occur to them to assign a name?
The first thing that comes to mind is that this child could not be registered in the national registry of the state because the agency would impose their power to force parents to choose at least one name.
Well, but is so high the degree of conviction of parents who bow to the bureaucratic burden, but nonetheless decide not to use that name you had to choose under pressure.
Our newborn only be identified as Pérez González, the surnames of the father and the mother, with no name.
The parents thought well. They say there are so many people with these two surnames that your child can only differentiate if you have any other name, as if to call him Jose, for example, your child will get confused with so many other José Pérez González surely exist, but their loved child's name will not be the only one who can have their own identity.
But these parents were in their thoughts beyond worried about the future of the child.
They say, perhaps rightly, that people have a name because others believe pronouncing just dominate.
In general all the objects and people are symbolized by a name, word, sound, allowing remove that anguish caused what has no name, the unspeakable, the ghostly, what seems uncontrollable.
The words, the names, nicknames, and other forms of nomination, relieve our anxiety because we can master what we can name.
Note: Original in Spanish (without translation by Google): Tenemos un nombre para no angustiar a los demás.
