Name;
A word or set of words by which a person, animal, place, or thing is known, addressed, or referred to.

from Christopher Dorner – Manifesto on Rap Genius

Meaning

This definition for “name” was pulled directly from the The Oxford Pocket Dictionary of Current English, a simplified version of the The Oxford English Dictionary.

Dorner’s choice of such a simplistic definition sets up his argument in the following “A name is more than just a noun…” paragraph, in which he suggests that a name is not merely a compilation of symbols or characters, but that it is all-encompassing, that “It’s your life”.
