Why do I remember some club songs a few years back from your
subject exchanges,
"James Brown is Dead" & "James Brown is Still Alive"? I can hear
rave beat now, "Gurth is dead, Gurth is still alive!"

- MC23, grinning at the collective groans I can hear now -

Ancient cultures believed that names held great power, personal
names more so and they were guarded very closely. To protect themselves,
they answered to another name, because if another discovered their real
name, it could be used against them.
History repeats itself.
