What’s There In A Name

I knew a guy named ‘angel’; who as his name suggests should have been as sacrosanct as gods residing in the cosmos,
However when one encountered him in pragmatic reality; he looked like an diabolical giant; with unruly strands of hair prominently cascading down his nape.

I knew a guy named ‘Tarzan’; who as his name suggests should have been as strong as the rocks; with a plethora of muscles bulging through his shirt,
However when I saw him transgressing across the road; he looked as feeble as the innocuous rabbit; trying to shirk society and retreat as quickly as possible into his den.

I knew a girl named ‘felicity’; who as her name suggested should have been basking in a river of perennial happiness,
However when I sat with her for marathon hours on the trot; I realized she was a misfit for her name; as she neither smiled nor moved; incessantly maintaining a face as expressionless as a stone.

I knew a guy named ‘prince’; who as his name suggested should have been embellished in an armory of exquisite diamonds and silver,
However when one saw him voraciously scratching his hair; he held a threadbare
container of steel to beg; wore scanty rags of paper to drape his shivering silhouette.

I knew a girl named ‘honey’; who as her name suggests should have been as sweet and melodious as the nectar oozing from beehives,
However when I sat beside her across the table; she irascibly hurled at me a volley of abashing expletives; burst on me unrelentingly like a pugnacious green chili.

I knew a guy named ‘love’; who as his name suggests should have been with a
congenial attitude; amicably propagating the essence of friendship,
However when I stumbled upon him suddenly at the discotheque; the first thing
he said was; he wanted to mercilessly kill the girl next door for rejecting his
proposal of illicit romance.

I knew a girl named ‘rose’; who as her name suggests should have been as mystical and enchanting as the mesmerizing flower,
However it was a fact that people shut their noses as she arrived; as she smelt of deplorable rotten eggs; intransigently spreading her aroma wherever she went.

I knew a guy named ‘crystal’; who as his name suggests should have been as scintillating as the conglomerate of silver mirrors,
However when I nudged by him on the street under the dazzling Sunlight; I
could hardly believe my eyes; as he appeared blacker than the blackest piece of coal existing on this earth.

On the other hand I knew a guy named ‘brownie’; who as his name suggests
should have been colored as disdainful mud,
However when I saw him addressing a large assemblage of people; I realized
that not only was he fair as white ice; but he had the charisma embedded in
him which few residing on this globe possess.

Therefore folks this is a question I put before you; tell me all of you what’s there in a name; what’s there to even contemplate about a name,
When the true beauty; the incorrigible spirit to live; the celestial feeling of benevolence and unbiased love; all lies impregnated in the throbbing heart.
