It’s all in the name

-A A +A
By John Pawlak

 I remember as a child how my parents told me that my name John, translated as “The gods are great.” Or glamorous. Or graceful or gassy.
Something like that.
 I found it amusing that my name would mean something other than just John and I never did know what language it was supposed to be.
With all the Johns in my school, it might have been “The gods are generous.” Very generous. I mean, every Tom, Dick and Harry was named John.
But what is in a name? Kabalarians profess that the alphabet has mathematical properties and that the letters in your name will determine your personality.
Your name defines who you are, what your strengths and weaknesses are, your mental and physical being. 
Your success in life and your entire destiny totally depends on your name.
I once considered changing my name to Zortanbezzobog the Exalted High Wizard of Thunder, hoping that I’d get more respect from my friends. It didn’t work, so I decided to stay with John.
Okay, so yeah, the Kabalarians are mondo wackos. But placing importance on one’s name is far more commonplace than you might think.
