What’s in a name? A rose by any other name would smell as sweet.”
So goes the eternally popular line from Shakespeare in his play Romeo and Juliet. This statement seemed to hold true in those days. Ironically, many would disagree with Shakespeare today, for a name means and defines everything. Even “a girl who had no name”, chose to become “Arya Stark of Winterfell” in the end.
