“What’s in a name? that which we call a rose
By any other name would smell as sweet.” – Juliet – Romeo & Juliet – Shakespeare
He had the same name as one of her ex boyfriends. She hoped with all her heart that he wasn’t anything like the old one. She and the new one had only just met the other week and they’d been talking ever since. And they were great and lengthy conversations. But, why should a name bother her so much? He did spell it differently after all. Though, she knew whenever she said his name that old, even painful memories would arise. Maybe, hopefully, the more they got to know each other, that would all outweigh the fact of the same name. And the old one would be forgotten.
