A rather famous question and age old question I ask today. The very famous line I quote is from William Shakespeare's pen. Juliet questions from the balcony regarding her new found love and why he has to be Romeo as that name is her enemy. She surmises that a rose would smell just as sweet if it had another name and the same must be true for her beloved.
My wonder is along the same lines, that power held in the giving and the calling of a name. Sir has a name he uses with me, or more correctly for me, that is only known between us. When I am called it my heart takes flight. I can feel his possession of me begin even if I am only reading in an email or text. You see I don't even have to hear him speak it to feel the power of the name. My day maybe full of hectic and rushed professional tasks yet that one word from him slices through all that clutter and instantly calm begins to fill my day. There certainly is power in a name given and called.
