Each of us has a name, a universal name, ours from the beginning of time to the entropy death of everything, thoughout all of the mess of permutations of universes that we call Occurrence, looped throughout countless incarnations and iterations of the great soul machine. And every time that two souls akin meet against all probability, and from across the vast void of space come together in a timeless example of that transcendental occurrence that we call love, their names meld, concatenate and our paired souls travel together across all infinity, are bound and combined through out all their remaining time in Occurrence. Which, due to the mutability of individuality and the rather high number of times each of us is liable to fall for someone in a single mortal lifetime, means that each of us now has approximately the same name, which is 10^7 syllables long, very difficult to pronounce, very, very difficult to sign conveniently and not very memorable except to boring people. (Which is one reason that most of us settle for things like "Gerald" or "Genghis Khan" or "Führer" as our day-to-day handles.)
