I, a parrot, am taught by you the names of others: I have learned of myself to say, "Hail! Caesar!"
      - Martial (Marcus Valerius Martialis) bk. XIV, ep. 73

Call me names, dearest! Call me thy bird
  That flies to thy breast at one cherishing word,
    That folds its wild wings there, ne'er dreaming of flight,
      That tenderly sings there in loving delight!
        Oh! my sad heart keeps pining for one fond word,--
          Call me pet names, dearest! Call me thy bird!
      - Frances Sargent Osgood

Names are changed more readily than doctrines, and doctrines more readily than ceremonies.
      - Thomas Love Peacock,

Some men do as much begrudge others a good name, as they want one themselves; and perhaps that is the reason of it.

O name forever sad! forever dear!
  Still breath'd in sighs, still usher'd with a tear.

A great name without merit is like an epitaph on a coffin.

Byzantine Logothete.

Your name hangs in my heart like a bell's tongue.
      - Edmond Rostand, Cyrano de Bergerac

Certain names always awake certain prejudices.
      - Joseph Roux

Make Hamilton Bamilton, make Douglas Puglas, make Percy Bercy, and Stanley Tanley and where would be the long-resounding march and energy divine of the roll-call of the peerage?
      - George Augustus Henry Sala

A virtuous name is the precious only good, for which queens and peasants' wives must contest together.

I am the last of my race. My name ends with me.
  [Ger., Ich bin der Letzte meines Stamms; mein Name
    Endet mit mir.]
      - Johann Christoph Friedrich von Schiller,

My foot is on my native heath, and my name is MacGregor.
      - Sir Walter Scott, Rob Roy (ch. XXXIV)

Who, noteless as the race from which he sprung,
  Saved others' names, but left his own unsung.
      - Sir Walter Scott, Waverley (ch. XIII)

Brutus and Caesar: what should be in Caesar?
  Why should that name be sounded more than yours?
    Write them together, yours is as fair a name;
      Sound them, it doth become the mouth as well;
        Weigh them, it is as heavy; conjure with them,
          Brutus will start a spirit as soon as Caesar.
            Now in the names of all the gods at once,
              Upon what meat doth this our Caesar feed,
                That he is grown so great?
      - William Shakespeare

Go back; the virtue of your name
  Is not here passable.
      - William Shakespeare

'Tis but thy name that is my enemy,--
  Thou art thyself, though not a Montague.
    What's Montague? it is nor hand, nor foot,
      Nor arm, nor face, nor any other part
        Belonging to a man. O, be some other name!
          What's in a name? that which we call a rose,
            By any other name would smell as sweet.
      - William Shakespeare

I would to God thou and I knew where a commodity of good names were to be bought.
      - William Shakespeare,
        King Henry the Fourth, Part I
         (Falstaff at I, ii)

Good name in man and woman, dear my lord,
  Is the immediate jewel of their souls.
    Who steals my purse steals trash; 'tis something, nothing;
      'Twas mine, 'tis his, and has been slave to thousands;
        But he that filches from me my good name
          Robs me of that which not enriches him
            And makes me poor indeed.
      - William Shakespeare,
        Othello the Moor of Venice
         (Iago at III, iii)

What's in a name?

What's in a name? That which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet.
      - William Shakespeare, Romeo and Juliet

There had she not been long but she became
  A joyful mother of two goodly sons;
    And, which strange, the one so like the other
      As could not be distinguished but by names.
      - William Shakespeare, The Comedy of Errors
         (Egeon at I, i)

'Good den, Sir Richard!'--'God-a-mercy, fellow'--
  And if his name be George, I'll call him Peter,
    For new-made honor doth forget men's names;
      'Tis too respective and too sociable
        For your conversion.
      - William Shakespeare,
        The Life and Death of King John
         (Bastard at I, i)
