A name is a label used to identify a person, place, or thing. It can be given to you by someone else or one you've chosen for yourself.
In the case of people, your name is one of the most important things your have both in terms of reputation and how you feel about yourself. Having a name you loathe can have very negative effects on your self-esteem, health, and success in this world; and likewise having a name you love has positive effects. If you are going though life with a name you can’t stand, you should change it to something you like. The bottom line is, it’s your name and you have to live with it, other people don’t.

1. An popular Egyptian god that is still worshiped to this day. Anubis conducts the people’s souls to judgment; he is widely known as the god of the dead. His duties range from caring for the dead’s bodies (He is credited with inventing embalming in the book of the dead.), transporting the dead’s souls, weighing the hearts of one’s soul against the feather of Ma’at to see how good or evil they are, to even protecting people while they sleep.
Like many Egyptian gods, Anubis has the head of an animal, in His case a jackel. This is thought to be due to the fact that jackels roamed the grave yards.
Prayers to Anubis have been found carved on most ancient tombs and modern day Pagans (those who feel connected to this god) often kept a statue of Anubis by their bedside to protect them while they sleep.

The term "angst" is now widely used with a negative and derisive connotation that mocks the expression of a common adolescent experience of malaise; in this sense it has become one of the most debased words in the current vocabulary.
