Must a name mean anything?

“Don’t stand chattering to yourself like that,” Humpty Dumpty said, looking at her for the first time, “but tell me your name and your business.”

“My name is Alice, but —“

“It’s a stupid name enough!” Humpty Dumpty interrupted impatiently. “What does it mean?”

“Of course it must,” Humpty said with a short laugh: my name means the shape I am – and a good handsome shape it is, too. With a name like yours, you might be any shape, almost.”


(Lewis Carroll, Through the Looking Glass, Chapter 6 “Humpty Dumpty”, L.C. Complete Works, (c) 1982, Arrangement and Design Octopus Books Ltd., page 180)
