In my travels, I have found that names are a lot more important than people give them credit for. A name has power, and meaning. A name can define who a person is when they fulfill the expectations set by the name, or by working hard to break those associations.

You don’t know my name, but it’s not my name I want you to know. Over the past few decades I have traveled the world (and beyond) to find the stories behind names that are worth knowing, but may not have been known until now. It has been an amazing journey tracking these tales down. This is my attempt to share some of the journey with the rest of the world.
