I love the classics.
So many writers like Dickens, Fitzgerald and Hawthorne - they all attached descriptive names to characters to further symbolize who they are.
Pip - little, young, humble
Daisy - innocent, fresh, simple
Chillingsworth - dark, vengeful
Dimmesdale - insignificant, weak
I love this clever literary trick, and God must too, because I often find similar parallels in real life.
I sometimes wonder whether my own last name implies something - either a gift or a burden or something spiritually connected.
I was reminded of this real life version by a story making the news today involving a man by the name of Dickman.
I'm not kidding.
Do you ever notice this strange trick of fate - a person's name corresponding with some element of their being?
