About this Quote

In this quote, Doug McClure is highlighting the effect that our individual relationships have on our perception of names. He suggests that the method we see a name is greatly affected by the people we understand who bear that name. This might be due to the associations we have with those people, whether positive or negative. For example, if we know someone called John who is kind and generous, we might have a positive view of the name John. On the other hand, if we understand someone called John who is untrustworthy and deceitful, we might have an unfavorable view of the name. Ultimately, this quote advises us that our experiences and connections with others form our point of views on the world, consisting of something as apparently basic as a name.
