nomic

A name can be a curse.  Some are dragged along by their name, like muddy river waters after a heavy shower, however much they may resist they’re propelled towards their destination…Others, on the contrary — their names are like masks that hide them, that deceive.  Most have no power at all, of course.

– Jose Eduardo Agualusa, The Book of Chameleons (originally published in Portuguese as O vendedor de passados)
