“What’s in a name?”

“What’s in a name?”
is one of our English-evergreen “conversational-tags” –

that help ‘conversation’ to flow along.

Today,
in acknowledging safe doorstep delivery of a purchase,
I came across the Jamaican name
‘Jahsue’ –

and on reflection I’m wondering if that is a form of
‘Joshua’ –

and I still don’t know what my own name
‘John’
“means”.

“A rose by any other name would smell as sweet”
is another ‘linguisticly-cultural’ “wisdom”.
