At birth, we are given a name. Our parents choose it for us.

Later, we can change it. We can take a new name from someone we love. Or change it entirely at will.

Our name in the real world can be different from the names we choose for ourselves.

To my family I am Son, Carl, Honey, Brother.

To my friends I’ve been Carl, C, Big C, Carlito, and Carlos.

To my gaming friends I am peroty.

To the rest of the world I am nothing. I don’t exist and I am no one.
